Tobacco giants hint at court challenge against plain packaging

Tobacco firms are hinting strongly that they will challenge the enforcement of plain cigarette packaging in England through the courts after the government’s public health minister announced her intent to press ahead with the new regulations.

Jane Ellison is drawing up plans to force manufacturers into selling cigarettes in plain, unbranded packs, following publication of an independent report which found it was ‘very likely’ such a move would reduce both the uptake and prevalence of smoking.
