Tobacco display ban due in England28th December 2011
Supermarkets in England have been reminded by the government to remove tobacco displays within the next three months.
The ban will come into force on April 6 in a bid to protect young people who were often the target of tobacco promotion, however smaller shops do not have to change their displays until 2015. Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are also moving towards similar bans. While from April 6 customers in England will still be able to buy cigarettes in the normal way, they will have to be kept under the counter.
