NZ Maori Select Committee: Plain Packaging

Nov 4, 2010

The Maori affairs select committee tabled its report, “Inquiry into the tobacco industry in Aotearoa and the consequences of tobacco use for Māori.” The report includes recommendations aimed at halving smoking by 2015 and turning New Zealand into a smoke-free nation by 2025. Among other measures, the select committee recommended  the Government require that “…the tobacco industry be required to provide tobacco products exclusively in plain packaging, harmonising with the proposed requirement in Australia from 2012.”
