Tobacco related news from Victoria.
Victorian health groups have welcomed a commitment from the State Government that all outdoor dining and drinking areas will be made smokefree.
Quit has welcomed news that the Federal Government is taking steps to restrict tobacco advertising online.
On Wednesday 24th August, the Plain Packaging Bill was passed in Canberra.
QUIT Victoria and Cancer Council Victoria has urged all parties to commit to introducing smokefree outdoor dining as part of their election platform, following the announcement it will be introduced in South Australia by July 2016.
Although Quit loves to hear people making the commitment to quit on New Year’s eve, it’s advising people to hold off until a couple of weeks into 2011 before quitting.
