Promotion Of Tobacco In Developing Countries

EDM number 991 in 1989-90, proposed by Ann Clwyd on 15/05/1990.

That this House condemns the unscrupulous promotion of cheap, strong, and highly addictive cigarettes by British American Tobacco in developing countries, particularly the refusal of BAT to put health warnings on cigarette packets and in advertisements; calls on the Health Minister to raise this issue during discussion of tobacco advertising at the European Community Council of Health Ministers meeting on 17th May; and urges the European Community to adopt rules requiring European Community companies to provide basic information on health and safety to governments of countries to which they export, and to establish minimum health, safety, and environmental standards for goods sold by European Community companies outside the European Community.

This motion has been signed by a total of 42 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
