Cig move welcomed by council advisors

A leading health advisor for Nottinghamshire Council has welcomed the move towards plain packaging for cigarettes and rolling tobacco.

Counc Bosnjak said: “I’m really pleased that we have moved a step closer to plain packaging for cigarettes and tobacco products.

“We’re currently in the process of looking at how we commission services to tackle tobacco harm in Nottinghamshire, and a key aspect of our new plans will be to put extra focus on preventing young people from wanting to start smoking in the first place. We think this is where plain packaging can make a real difference.”
