HC Deb 08 July 1977 vol 934 c677W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will make available additional funds for health education campaigns to counter the current wave of publicity for new cigarette brands.

Mr. Moyle

I would refer my hon. Friend to my reply on 24th June.—[Vol. 933, c.620–1.]—Until it is clear what effect the publicity has had on total consumption of cigarettes, and of low tar brands in particular, any specific action by the Health Education Council for that reason would be premature.
