House of Commons to debate gaming-related epilepsy

By Mike, Thursday, 12 June 2008 21:00 GMT

The House of Commons is set to debate gaming-related epilepsy after a strenuous campaign by a mum whose son suffered an epileptic fit for the first time whilst playing Rayman Raving Rabbids DS.

The child’s mother, Gaye Herford, wants games to be brought in line with TV and films, both of which are already required by law to be screened for any potential epileptic triggers.

No date for the debate has been set.
