CALL TO ACTION – Plain Pack update

On Friday evening we received the fantastic news that Ireland has become the second country to pass a law paving the way for the introduction of mandatory standardised packaging.

Over the weekend the ASH team worked hard to pull together a media strategy, which aims to apply pressure on the government to take immediate action on becoming the third country to bring in standardised packaging.

The call to action is for the government to pass a second reading on the bill in the House of Parliament immediately. The Health Select Committee also recommended the passage of Bill, stating that standardised packaging will not take away the intellectual property/trademark rights of tobacco companies.

Now is the time to reinforce this message with the decision makers who can make this happen. Please take some time today to play your part to further momentum and achieve standardised packaging in NZ.
