Nessa Childers MEP said there had been a strong vote today in her Public Health Committee on the EU tobacco control directive, “despite the massive industry lobbying against the law”.
“As co-chair of the ‘MEPs against Cancer’ forum in the European Parliament, I have campaigned and pressed for this anti-tobacco legislation for a long time,” she said.
I am delighted that today we voted against the massive negative industry lobbying campaign which tried to try to delay, block and defeat this legislation.
