NI remove cigarette displays

5th February 2009

Plans to remove cigarettes from display in shops in Northern Ireland have been announced by Health Minister Michael McGimpsey.

The plan also seeks to restrict access to cigarette vending machines for those under 18. The Department of Health said that if the plans were approved by the Assembly, it and local councils would work with relevant organisations to minimise any burden on business. The new measures could be in force by next year in an initiative designed to help young people and also adults trying to stop smoking.
