Anti-smoking groups rioting in the streets over delay in removing counter displays

By johnboy 26 August 2008 21

OK, so they aren’t actually rioting. More issuing stern denunciations.

The ABC reports that the Tobacco Control Amendment Bill is coming in for cursory debate this week. It will outlaw, eventually, counter displays of cigarettes.

Action on Smoking and Health (ASH – oh my aching sides) chief executive Anne Jones is angry though; because retailers will now get some time to re-model their shops. The end of 2009 is now the end date for most retailers and 2010 for the tobacconists who’ve rather built their shops around the displays.

What’s Your opinion?
