Chile moves towards TV smoking ban

| December 24, 2012

Chile seems set to ban tobacco smoking during television programs screened while ‘children may be watching’, according to a story by Charlotte Meritan for I Love Chile.

The Chilean Senate has approved a bill changing the national smoking laws and it is now up to the Chamber of Deputies to decide.

In addition, the bill would extend the public places where smoking is banned.

And it would require tobacco manufacturers annually to inform the ministry of health about donations they have made.
