Motion text

That this House acknowledges the hard work of small and independent retailers; congratulates them on the vital role they play in many diverse communities across the country; recognises the ongoing economic and commercial pressures threatening their viability and survival; is concerned that the regulatory burden placed upon them should be maintained at an appropriate level; expresses its concern that proposed measures to ban the display of tobacco products in small shops are not balanced, proportionate or firmly evidence-based; calls upon the Government to further consider the effects of the measures on the viability of small shops and the market in illicit tobacco; welcomes Government action to address illegal sales of tobacco; and urges the Government to pursue the most effective and proven measures by which under-18 year olds can be deterred from smoking.

DISPLAY OF TOBACCO PRODUCTS (Amendment 1)
leave out from `level' to `tobacco' in line 8 and insert, `notes that, according to small shop owners, tobacco sales typically account for 25 per cent. of turnover but only account for around four per cent. of their net profits; further welcomes the long-term decline in smoking prevalence in England to 22 per cent. in 2006 and to six per cent. amongst 11 to 15 year-olds in 2007, the lowest levels since records began; and congratulates the Heart of England Co-operative on their policy of donating to charity the profits they make from tobacco sales.'.
