Union backs down on tobacco advertising ban

tobacco advertising on television and in magazines has been banned for years, now posters could disappear. After the Union group against a ban has been blocked, there is movement.

The Union group in the Bundestag seems to want to extend the ban on tobacco advertising. It will, in the future, strict limits on outdoor advertising for tobacco products, said the health topics competent group of Vice-Georg Nüßlein (CSU), the Newspapers of the Funke media group. A corresponding Bill is expected to pass later this year, the Bundestag.

the target was the international agreement of the world health organization (WHO) to ban implement advertising for tobacco, "one-to-one," said consumer health protection, the competent group, the Deputy Gitta Connemann (CDU). It was proven that the tobacco acting advertising animation and interaction, particularly among young people, she said, the Funke media group. The WTO agreements in place since 2005 in Germany, but is not yet fully implemented.

so Far, resistance in the Union

The Federal drug Commissioner Marlene Mortler, the CSU called on the Union group, their opposition to the law plans.

In the last Parliament, yet the Cabinet had the walls of the draft law, advertising of tobacco products on billboards and to prohibit in the cinema from 2020, largely, although. The law but failed at the resistance of the CDU/CSU parliamentary group in the Bundestag. A new commitment to a ban on leaving the Union group tip from a draft of the coalition agreement for the current legislative period.

Now there is movement. Apparently, it also has to do with the change in the group tip. Because the former parliamentary leader, Volker Kauder, was regarded as the biggest opponents of an advertising ban. Publicly he did not want to confirm this, however. Ralph Brinkhaus is obviously a new course.
