HC Deb 27 May 1976 vol 912 c333W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will discuss, during his negotiations on the health hazards of cigarettes with the tobacco industry, the use of one complete side of each cigarette packet to publicise the tar, nicotine, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide contained in the average cigarette of the brand concerned.

Dr. Owen

This suggestion can be considered by the Independent Scientific Committee on Smoking and Health (The Hunter Committee) whose advice I shall be seeking as a preliminary to discussions with the industry on a new package of voluntary agreements aimed to reduce the health hazards of cigarettes.
