Tobacco Retailers Bill - Call for Evidence

The Tobacco Retailers Bill was formally introduced to the Northern Ireland Assembly on 15 April 2013 and received its Second Reading on 23 April 2013. The Bill has now been referred to the Committee for Health, Social Services & Public Safety which has responsibility for the Committee Stage of the Bill.

The Committee therefore wishes to hear views from all interested parties in order to assist it with the scrutiny of the Bill.

Any organisation or individual with an interest in this consultation is invited to submit evidence to the Committee by e-mail to or by post to:

The Committee Clerk, Room 410, Parliament Buildings, Ballymiscaw, Stormont, Belfast BT4 3XX.

Your written submission should be structured to address specific clauses and schedules of the Bill and, if appropriate, should include any amendments you wish to propose to the text.

If you do not have access to the internet or e-mail facilities or you have any other enquiries, please contact the Committee Office on 028 90418316.

The closing date for submissions is Friday 17 May 2013.
