Under-18 sunbed ban passed

13th June 2008

New laws which ban under-18s from using sunbed in salons have been passed in Scotland.

MSPs at Holyrood see the move as underlining the dangers of their use with salons in Scotland set to face a £100 fine if they are caught letting people younger than 18 use sunbeds. Public health minister Shona Robison said the legislation puts Scotland ahead of the rest of the UK in this area, while also not ruling out a future licensing regime for sunbed salons.
