Motion text

That this House acknowledges the hard work of small and independent retailers; congratulates them on the vital role they play in the many diverse communities across the country; recognises the ever-present economic and commercial pressures threatening their viability and survival and is concerned that the regulatory burden placed upon them should be maintained at an appropriate level; expresses its concern that any new measures to restrict the display of tobacco products in small shops should be balanced, proportionate and firmly evidence-based; and calls upon the Government to commit to open, full and genuine consultation with all affected and interested parties to examine the effect of any such proposals on the viability of small shops, the market in illicit tobacco and the impact on competition; further welcomes Government action to address illegal sales of tobacco; and urges the Government to continue to pursue the most effective and proven measures by which under-18s can be deterred from smoking.
