Health (Tobacco, Nicotine etc. and Care)(Scotland) Bill - Call for written evidence

The Scottish Parliament Health and Sport Committee has issued a call for evidence on the Health (Tobacco, Nicotine etc. and Care) (Scotland) Bill.

The stated policy objective of the Bill is to make provisions for tobacco, nicotine and related products, in particular to make provisions about retailing, to amend the prohibition on smoking in certain areas and to control advertising and promotion; to make a provision about a duty of candour following serious incidents in the course of providing care; to make a provision about offences applying to ill-treatment or neglect where care is provided, and for connected purposes.
