Pleural Plaques

I signed up to the “Justice for Pleural Plaques’ campaign through my union (GMB) a while back and it is really making some headway.
They are now asking people to send a message to Alisdair Darling and Peter Mandelson.

The campaign is really about one of the reasons I joined Labour and one of the reasons I am in a union: it’s about giving ordinary people a fair hearing. The compensation claims in question are generally a few thousand pounds – but that’s enough to make a significant difference to the lives of people living in fear because they have permanent scarring of their lungs.

This is a very personal account of it.
