Poll: Should planned legislation on sunbeds be stricter?
Legislation to ban the use of sunbeds by under 18s and regulate the industry has been approved but the Irish Cancer Society says this is not enough. Do you agree?

THE GOVERNMENT HAS approved legislation to ban anyone under 18 from using sunbeds and to regulate their sale, hire and advertising.

However the Irish Cancer Society has said this is not enough and a ban should include people with type one and type two skin, which covers a lot of people who live in Ireland, as they are at a higher risk of skin cancer.

We want to know what you think: Should the planned legislation on sunbeds go further?
