Carreras encouraged by smoking ban changes

Tobacco distributors Carreras says it is encouraged by the decision of the health minister to tweak aspects of the regulation governing the ban on smoking in public spaces.



Among the changes, tobacco companies will no longer be required to place warning signs on individual sticks of cigarettes.



A public space and a workplace are also to be redefined so that people can smoke in open air outside of a public building.



Carreras spokesman Christopher Brown says, since the regulations were imposed there has been about a 30 per cent fall off in cigarette sales.
