HC Deb 26 June 1995 vol 262 c479W
Mr. Sheerman

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what action she is taking to counter advertising campaigns from the tobacco industry. [29644]

Mr. Sackville

Advertising campaigns for tobacco are governed by the voluntary agreement between the Government and the tobacco industry. The agreement includes a number of measures which restrict in particular the exposure of children and young people to tobacco advertising. The committee for monitoring agreements on tobacco advertising and sponsorship investigates any complaints alleging breaches of the agreement. If there is found to be a breach, the tobacco company concerned takes immediate remedial action.
