New Myth-busting briefing on the Tobacco Products Directive

Policy-makers encounter a wide array of arguments for weakening the Tobacco Products Directive. But are they true?

Policy-makers encounter a wide array of arguments for weakening the Tobacco Products Directive. But are they true? This new myth-busting briefing by the Smoke Free Partnership shows that the arguments used by the tobacco industry and its allies to influence the policy debate are at the very least misleading, and often plain false.

This briefing by the Smoke Free Partnership:

1. Sets out the evidence base for the key new measures in the revised Tobacco Products Directive (TPD)

2. Counters the myths being put forward by the tobacco industry

3. Explains why we believe that in some instances the TPD should be revised and improved
