Eu Directive On Tobacco Products

EDM number 1159 in 1999-00, proposed by John Cummings on 20/11/2000.

That this House congratulates Her Majesty's Government on its renewed efforts to educate young people about the dangers associated with smoking; notes the considerable tax revenue raised in excise taxes on cigarettes; is concerned about the export of UK manufacturing jobs which will be brought about by the implementation of the draft Directive on the manufacture, sale and presentation of tobacco products; is concerned that these job losses will bring none of the health benefits claimed by the European Commission; applauds The Sun newspaper for highlighting the disproportionate impact of this Directive on jobs in the UK, particularly in the constituency of Easington; and calls on Her Majesty's Government to take account of the representations of the Tobacco Workers Alliance and change its position on the export ban in the Directive.

This motion has been signed by a total of 27 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
