Smokefree Environments and Regulated Products (Smoked Tobacco) Amendment Bill – comment by Clive Bates

I give my views on three central proposals in the Bill.

This bill proposes to significantly limit the number of retailers able to sell smoked tobacco products; aims to prevent young people from taking up smoking by prohibiting the sale of smoked tobacco products to anyone born on or after 1 January 2009; and aims to make smoked tobacco products less appealing and addictive.
