Hudghton (Greens/EFA) - I voted for the various amendments which deleted natural sources of optical radiation from the scope of this Directive. The misguided attempt to include sunlight was a gift to the ultra sceptics, who enjoyed putting about such stories as "Brussels seeks ban on sunlight". Of course our constituents should be aware of the health risks of over-exposure to the sun, but EU-wide regulation from Brussels is not the best solution, nor is burdening employers with yet another obligation. The responsibility for informing our peoples about the effects of sun on their skin should rest firmly with the member states and devolved governments. There is after all a marked difference in the climate between Scotland and Greece for example and therefore health advice would be best tailored to suit local circumstances.
