  • Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, distinguished participants. Before I start my presentation, I would like to pay tribute to the organisations that support the Smoke Free Partnership. These organisations are the European Respiratory Society, Cancer Research UK, the European Heart Network and Ash UK. I would also like to specially and warmly thank the Irish Cancer Society for their special support to SFP during 2013. I certainly hope that this partnership will continue. I would also like to acknowledge the close collaboration with ECL.
  • At EU level (from now to 2014):Revision of the Tobacco Products Directive and possibility to introduce LARGE mandatory pictorial warnings and plain packagingAt EU level (from 2014 to 2019)Revision of the Tobacco Tax Directive
  • Time : we want the directive adopted before 2014 EP electionsContent: we want a good legislation to emerge from the adoption processNeed to move fast and in a coordinated manner
  • Use the Myth BusterRead our legal analysis
  • Remember that the industry does not have any evidence based arguments – certainly not peer reviewed = they are just very good salemen!
  • Consultation – 85,000 responses Analysis doneImpact assessment done = 1000 pagesInter-service consultation completedDalli resignation  Borg appointment TPD proposal released on the 19th of December 2012
  • Intense lobbying from the tobacco industry and its front groups and alliesHigh political sensitivityHigh media pressureThe political agenda has changed dramatically in the last 6 months and continues to changeKeeping the focus on the key priorities will be a challenge“What’s the hurry?” “National impact assessment” “Not the time to threaten jobs”
