Sunbed bill – still time to email your MP

Yesterday, we went to Downing Street to present the Save Your Skin petition to health minister Gillian Merron, who came to give Government support to the Bill.

The petition has been signed by over 10,000 people, and is backed by The Sun newspaper.

The huge support this petition has had is fantastic, and just shows how much the public want a law to protect children and teenagers from the dangers of sunbeds.

But crucially, we need MPs to come to the Second Reading of the Private Member’s Bill this Friday – without which this bill won’t go any further.

Please help us by asking your MP to support the bill – by emailing them through our CancerCampaigns website.

    Hi there,

    I’m glad I found this article.

    Did you hear about the meeting of CERN in Geneva next week?

    The following petition supports you in asking decision makers in research to be accountable for their spending:

    Maybe you can post this for many more people to see.
