Will Government finally act on regulating the sunbed industry?

More support today for the BMA’s calls to get the tanning industry better regulated. The independent government advisory committee Comare (Committee on Medical Aspects of Radiation in the Environment) says the current system, where the industry is self-regulated, is inadequate on public health grounds.

The committee’s making several recommendations to Government, many of which we’ve been wanting to see happen for a long time.

These include;

Preventing the use of sun beds by children
Ensuring that sun bed users are supervised
Ending the use of coin-operated machines

The question is, will the UK Government act on these recommendations and actually finally do something about regulating the sunbed industry properly?
