Description
Interview with Neil Cripps on why people on kidney dialysis machines, like himself, are being badly affected by the current strike by electric power workers. Discussion of the effects of prolonged power cuts on treatment, and that whilst the Electricity Board gives rota advice at the beginning of disputes on high risk periods, this is of little use when action escalates. Speaker calls for an end to the action by power workers, which is putting lives at risk. Male interviewer not identified.
