To many people are still suffering after all these knowing its devastating effects. More action should have been taken years ago, but it's not too late.

My father was an engineer and was paid extra when he had to do his job when asbestos was about. I only know this because I was cleaning out some of his paperwork and found it. No extra pay can compensate for the know risk associated with exposure to asbestos. If we don't import it we don't need anyone to be exposed to new asbestos.
