There is no one I can thank personally for their help in the completion of this thesis, as it has been all my own painstaking work of research, write up, re-write up, referencing, library fines, trips to London, letters to America, and late nights without coffee. (edit 2015: My special condemnation, although no place for computer reviews has to go to the Amstrad Notepad NC100, which through digital fault and my misplaced trust in technology, completely erased parts of the thesis twice). However my sincere gratitude goes to those people who have written, published and distributed the books, journals, leaflets, publications, theses, I have referenced from. Including all those societies, organisations, groups, dermatologists, who work tirelessly to promote the affliction among the workers, and whom also I have referenced from. The HSE, DSS get my special regards for the detailed information they have provided me. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Second, The Honourable Members Of Parliament, and The House Of Lords, for passing the laws, making all this information accessible to me via university and library, and providing the means, methods and finance to continue with my research, through a troubled period. All the staff, sponsors, administrators, interlibrary loan distributors, at Aberdare library, Bristol Medical library, Trevithick/Science/Medical/Senghenydd/Arts/Science/Law libraries in Cardiff University Campus, Pencoed College Lib., Hubbert Dothee Lib. at Cardiff Royal Infirmary, Mid Glam University Lib., Cardiff Central Lib. A special and warm hearted hug to all the staff and students at Pencoed college, my neighbours in Dean Street, Durbin P.P.S., the people of Wales, that have pardoned my research methods, and for allowing me the opportunity to continue my education and personal enhancement. Most of all my love, sincerest admiration, concern and apologies go to my Father, my best friend, and essential guide to the universe.
