Current Search Method

Proximity search. This is the default method and returns matches when all the search terms (see Note) occur within the same text element (paragraph, bullet point, footnote, etc.); date ordered list.

Note. Enter a maximum of 5 words/phrases using English alphanumeric characters and, optionally, hyphens (but see below). Avoid the inclusion of hyphens where possible; where hyphens are used, also search for the corresponding non-hyphenated phrase. Whole words, rather than fragments, are matched, though a singular noun will match its plural and the infinitive of a verb its other tenses where these are formed regularly. Within phrases (which must be enclosed in double quotes), periods, commas, colons possessive apostrophes, and hyphens can be used in addition to alphanumeric characters if necessary. The use of any other symbols will generate an error. Outside phrases, common words (conjunctions, articles, prepositions, pronouns, etc.) are excluded from the search term list. In the context of this site asbestos is considered a common word.

From 1899 the defendant operated a number of factories in England engaged in processing asbestos and manufacturing asbestos products. A factory at Barking was run by the defendant from 1913 until 1962, and then by a wholly-owned subsidiary until the factory was closed in 1968.
