    Dying Canberra man James Wallner has won his fight for a government support scheme that provides financial relief to the victims of Mr Fluffy asbestos.

    Given just days to live, the Commonwealth rushed the announcement today before Mr Wallner passes away as a result of an incurable cancer.

    The Federal government has agreed to contribute $8 million to the scheme, which will recognise the suffering of those who have become sick after living in a home that was insulated with loose-fill asbestos.
