Written answers (Question to Minister for Health)

The drafting of legislation is a matter for the Attorney General's Office in accordance with priorities set by Government. The sunbeds legislation is accorded priority drafting and I understand from the Office of the Attorney General that drafting of this legislation is expected to be completed in late 2012. The Bill, when drafted, will need to be notified to the EU Commission under the Technical Standards Directive prior to its publication.
