Having spent so long now running my way through Hansard and other assorted Parliamentary publications there are moments when I see something and just get suspicious almost instantly. Take for example a question tabled for answer next Monday from the Labour MP for Swansea East, Siân James.
He has asked the Department of Work and Pensions if the Secretary of State "will hold discussions with the Health and Safety Executive on the regulation of sunbeds". Now a month ago you would have thought "ahh she's taking the mickey out Hain" but there does actually seem to be a lot of people talking about this in the last few weeks.
So here's a prediction, I'll give evens that in the next few months there will be a directive from the European Commission about regulating the sunbed industry and that the Government will "start a debate" on it, which actually means they will have their view already set just like they did with incandescent light bulb a year or so ago.
Peter, get in quick and buy your own before your old mates ban them and you lose all the extra cash allowances.
