Tobacco Advertising and Promotion Bill [Lords] — New Clause 2 — Commission of body to study the effects of Act — 21 Oct 2002 at 17:45

I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

The new clause would require the Secretary of State to commission a reputable and appropriate qualified body to carry out a rolling study of the effects of the legislation on the prevalence of smoking in the UK population, with particular reference to those between the ages of 16 and 19, and those under 16, as well as its effects on market share. Furthermore, a report should be made to the House after three years and annually thereafter.

Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-

The House divided: Ayes 120, Noes 329.
