Firefighters and firetrucks are expected on the forecourt of parliament at twelve-thirty today to remind politicans they are still not automatically covered for occupational cancers.

Alex Forrest is a Canadian firefighter and an expert in firefighters' occupational cancers. He talks to Corin Dann.
