Today, yet another MP put their support behind the campaign to introduce plain packaging laws that could see all tobacco products in the UK displayed in plain, standardised packaging, free of advertising.
The Crewe Chronicle today published:
Sandbach MP backs campaign for plain cigarette packaging
SANDBACH MP Fiona Bruce is urging the Government to introduce plain packaging for cigarettes.
The MP has been a consistent campaigner for standardised packaging since entering Parliament.
More than 1,000 Cheshire East residents have also signed up to the Plain Packs Protect campaign, which demands the end of glitzy cigarette packaging aimed at young people.
Mrs Bruce said: “I fully support the campaign for the introduction of plain packaging of tobacco products.
“I’m delighted that many people in my constituency have already taken action to support this. Attractive cigarette packs are an important marketing tool used by the tobacco industry and the plain packaging of tobacco products would give children one less reason to find smoking appealing.”
A consultation on plain, standardised tobacco packaging ended in August and the results are expected early next year.
