HC Deb 04 March 1997 vol 291 cc565-6W
Mr. Lamont

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what has been Her Majesty's Government's policy towards proposals for an EU anti-smoking campaign; and what is the current status of these proposals. [18088]

Mr. Horam

The Government acknowledge the European Commission's work in putting together a paper on the present and proposed future Community role in combating tobacco consumption.

However, we consider that tobacco control measures are primarily a matter for individual member states, taking account of their differing social and economic contexts.
