If the latest tobacco strategy is accepted by the States, rows of cigarette packets on display in shops will become a thing of the past in Jersey

SMOKING in cars and public spaces could be banned under the latest ministerial plans to encourage people to stop smoking.
Weeks after the release of figures showing that rates of lung cancer in Jersey are nearly 30 per cent higher than the south-west of England, the Health Department has released the Tobacco Control Strategy 2010-2015.
The strategy, already endorsed by the Council of Ministers including Health Minister Anne Pryke, recommends banning tobacco advertising and display in shops, and banning cigarette vending machines altogether.
It also proposes banning cigarettes from view in Jersey shops and pubs, increasing the number of smoke-free homes in which babies live, and a new crackdown on underage smoking. (from JEP)
