'Slump' in cigarette sales3rd October 2007
Sales of cigarettes fell by 11% during July when the smoking ban was first introduced in England.
The research from AC Nielsen covered all sales outlets but notes that the July figure was exceptional with the combined drop of 7.3% in July and August being more indicative of trends. AC Nielsen said July’s sudden slump followed the pattern seen in other countries that have introduced a similar ban which is aiming to reduce the number of deaths from second-hand smoke.
