HC Deb 11 May 1978 vol 949 cc587-8W
Mr. Kenneth Clarke

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the Government remain committed to the three-year agreement with the tobacco industry on the reduction of tar yields in cigarettes announced on 8th March 1977; and whether the proposed introduction of a supplementary duty on higher tar yield cigarettes is regarded by the Government as compatible with that agreement.

Mr. Robert Sheldon
