Mr Iain Duncan Smith
Mr Michael Howard
Mr John Bercow
Mr David Lidington
Mr Howard Flight
Mr Christopher Chope

David Maclean

        That this House, whilst supporting the aim of reducing the number of deaths from smoking, declines to give a Second Reading to the Tobacco Advertising and Promotion Bill [Lords] because there is insufficient evidence that its provisions will lead to a quantifiable reduction in tobacco consumption; because it does not allow for a mechanism for testing and reflection upon the assumptions upon which the Bill is based; and because it does nothing to combat the increase in the prevalence of smoking amongst teenagers and other vulnerable groups due to the growth in the importation and sale of illegal tobacco products.

        The Eighth Report from the Joint Committee on Human Rights of Session 2001-02 on the Tobacco Advertising and Promotion Bill, HC 474, and the Government's response thereto, included in the Committee's Fourteenth Report, HC 674, are relevant.

Debate may continue until 10.00 p.m.
