Jo praises consituent in Commons for tireless campaign on sleep disorder

Joseph Johnson: Will the hon.

We need to raise awareness of this condition in the haulage industry, and Mrs Upcraft's campaign is performing a vital public service.

Meg Munn: Indeed. I have had the pleasure of meeting the hon. Gentleman's constituent, Mrs Upcraft.

These people are all determined that other people should not suffer in the way that they have suffered.
