HC Deb 25 June 1979 vol 969 c93W
Mr. Stan Thorne

asked the Secretary of State for Health and Social Services if he is satisfied that the alleged payment of £12,000 from the tobacco industry to the Freedom Organisation for the Right to Enjoy Smoking Tobacco is consistent with the agreement between the Government and the tobacco industry.

Sir George Young

The scope of the voluntary agreement which expires next March does not extend to issues such as those apparently advocated by the organisation to which the hon. Member refers.
