RIP Mick Behan, anti-benzo campaigner

Mick Behan’s work for the campaign on benzos over 30 years – including as PPS to MPs – was phenomenal, such as co-founding the All Party Parliamentary Group on Involuntary Tranquilliser Addiction. “My mother, were she still alive, would have added her appreciation of everything he did so selflessly and tirelessly in support of for benzo victims everywhere,” Professor Heather Ashton’s son, John, wrote.
