Whoops !

On Friday, I erroneously stated that bans on tobacco displays had been implemented in Scotland and the UK. It seems I may have jumped the gun. That legislation is still pending and, as yet, has not been approved by parliament.

However, my comments about some public health and/or tobacco control groups misleading the House of Lords are no less valid.

For a very thorough analysis of the subject of my post, I would refer readers to an article on Spiked, by Patrick Basham. The piece is titled “
Displaying the truth about policymaking, Newly released correspondence shows how UK government tobacco policy is being created by anti-tobacco groups”,
