MEPs call for stronger anti-tobacco measures in products directive

| February 25, 2013

Three members of the European Parliament have called for a more forceful Tobacco Products Directive than the one that will come into being if proposed revisions to the directive are put into effect, according to an Agence Europe story.

The three MEPs are: Cristian Silviu Busoi, of Romania, co-president of the MEP Heart Group; Alojz Peterle, of Slovenia, the chairperson of MEPs Against Cancer (MAP); and Nessa Childers, of Ireland, the vice chairperson of MAC.

The European Commission published its proposed revisions to the directive in December.

The European Parliament’s position in first reading is expected after the summer break.
