Ban on tobacco ads to be debated

Politicians in Guernsey are set to debate legislation banning the display and advertising of tobacco products in all shops across the island.

For the past three months the States has been carrying out an island-wide consultation to gather people's views.

As part of the exercise, the Health and Social Services Department also gathered views on whether cigarette vending machines should be banned.

The consultation period ended on Saturday.
