Motion text

That this House is deeply concerned that tobacco companies are aggressively targeting women and children in the Third World with marketing tactics which are being banned in Europe; is concerned that the projected number of deaths from smoking-related diseases in the Third World will rise from one million per year to seven million per year by the year 2030; notes the European Union directive banning tobacco advertising, sponsorship and promotion; and believes that the Government should include a firm commitment to global standards on the marketing of tobacco in the forthcoming White Paper on Tobacco so that the same basic rules apply to tobacco companies wherever they operate.
