Mr. Ashley

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will now introduce legislation imposing a comprehensive ban on all advertising and promotion of tobacco; and if he will make a statement.

In respect of tobacco advertising, I refer the right hon. Member to my reply to the hon. Member for Preston (Mr. Thorne) on 15 November [Vol. 49, c.432.] The position is the same in respect of tobacco promotion.
