HC Deb 25 June 1997 vol 296 c529W
Mr. Hawkins

To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage, pursuant to his answer of 19 May,Official Report, column 361, if he will list the alternative sponsors he has identified to replace existing funding provided by tobacco companies for each sport in the event of the proposed ban on tobacco sponsorship of sport. [4289]

Mr. Banks

I will be looking very carefully at how best to achieve an end to the advertising and promotion of tobacco at sports events in a way that will minimise any damage to the sports concerned. Clearly we will do all we can to help the sports concerned identify alternative sponsors.
