Government unveils new tobacco control plan

In collaboration with Adfero

The government has published a new tobacco control plan, aimed at reducing smoking rates and helping tackle the damage caused by tobacco.

Regulations to put tobacco out of sight in shops in England will come into force for large stores such as supermarkets on April 6th 2012, but the deadline for smaller shops to comply has been pushed back from the previous Labour government's original date in October 2013 to April 2015.
