Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health
General Scheme of the Public Health (Tobacco and Nicotine Inhaling Products) Bill 2019: Department of Health
There is also the question of whether, if we start censoring images of cigarettes, we should move on to censoring violence and so on and where we will stop. That is the balance we need to strike as a society.
The meeting has been really helpful. It would be useful if we could receive examples of other jurisdictions' approaches, for the benefit of the wider Oireachtas. I thank our guests. They provided some really useful information and it has been a good discussion. We are all a bit more aware of the challenges we face in the context of this legislation. I appreciate them attending and giving of their time.
