Proposal to ban the display of tobacco in Guernsey

Related Stories

Shops in Guernsey face being banned from displaying tobacco, if a proposal from health officials gets the backing of the States.

The Health and Social Services Department also wants stricter rules surrounding tobacco vending machines.

Deputies are being asked to agree to ban the display of tobacco at the point of sale and restrict vending machines to adult-only establishments.

The proposals will go before the States in June.

In 1996, the States became the first government in the British Isles to ban tobacco advertising.

The proposals also include making tobacco vending machines token operated and ensuring all products imported into the island include pictorial warnings.
