§ Mr. Ieuan Wyn Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Health when he intends to introduce legislation banning the advertising of tobacco products.
§ Mr. Dorrell
There are no plans to introduce legislation to introduce further bans on tobacco advertising. Our system of voluntary agreements continues to provide a flexible and effective way of controlling such advertising. On 9 September my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State announced the conclusion of a revised voluntary agreement on advertising which introduces a range of new controls many of which are designed to protect children.
