The Regulatory Impact Assessment for the smokefree element of the Health Act 2006 is published, a copy has already been placed in the Library, and is available on the Department's website at:
We have given a commitment to review the impact of the smokefree law three years after its implementation on 1 July 2007. The review will take place in the latter part of 2010. In preparation for the review, the Department has commissioned a number of research reports. Once these reports have been completed and peer reviewed they will be published and will be given full consideration as part of the review.
