PostSubject: Cigarette display ban considered   Mon Mar 24, 2008 5:51 pm

Displaying cigarettes in shops could be banned in England under
government plans being considered to cut smoking and discourage
children from starting.


Tougher controls on vending machines in pubs and restaurants are also
being discussed, and the public will be consulted on the proposals soon.
Ex-smoker and Tory leader David Cameron said the idea was worth looking at.

But the Association of Convenience Stores said the move would be ineffective and present major problems.It said forcing shops to hide their cigarettes would create practical difficulties and result in extra expense for shop owners.

Outlining the proposals, Public Health Minister Dawn Primarolo said it was "vital" to teach children that "smoking is bad"."If that means stripping out vending machines or removing cigarettes from behind the counter, I'm willing to do that," she said.
Ms Primarolo stressed: "Children who smoke are putting their lives at
risk and are more likely to die of cancer than people who start smoking
later."

"Opposition leader Mr Cameron backed the idea, saying: "As someone who struggled with giving up smoking, it helps if you take away some of the temptation.
"It is difficult and there will be all sorts of problems in terms of the layout of shops, that's why it is right to have a consultation.
