New clause 3 - Displays

Part of Tobacco Advertising and Promotion Bill – in a Public Bill Committee at 4:15 pm on 8 February 2001.

Alert me about debates like this

``(1) A person who in the course of a business displays tobacco products or causes them to be displayed in a place or on a website where tobacco products are offered for sale is guilty of an offence if the display does not comply with such requirements (if any) as may be specified by the appropriate Minister in regulations.

(2) It is not an offence under subsection (1) for a person who does not carry on business in the United Kingdom to display or cause to be displayed tobacco products or their prices by means of a website which is accessed in the United Kingdom.

(3) The regulations may, in particular, provide for the meaning of ``place'' in subsection (1).

(4) The regulations must make provision for a display which also amounts to an advertisement to be treated for the purpose of offences under this Act—

(a) as an advertisement and not as a display, or

(b) as a display and not as an advertisement.''—[Yvette Cooper.]

Brought up, read the First and Second time, and added to the Bill.
