Motion text

That this House expresses concern that under 18 year olds are able to easily access unsupervised sunbed salons; notes that unsupervised sunbed salons have no staff to prevent under 18 year olds using sunbeds; notes that both the World Health Organisation and the European Union have expressed the view that under 18 year olds should not use sunbeds; notes that sunbed use when young is associated with an increased risk of skin cancer; further notes with alarm the increase in incidence rates of malignant melanoma over the last 20 years; recognises the commitment in the Cancer Reform Strategy to review options for addressing sunbed consumer safety; and calls on the Government to prohibit use of sunbeds by under 18 year olds, provide evidence-based health information in sunbed salons and prohibit unsupervised sunbed salons.
