Its stance is at variance with that taken by the European Parliament, a point highlighted by Minister for Children James Reilly. He said this week: “It is not acceptable that the European Parliament works hard to progress a tobacco directive which seeks to protect public health and yet the commission is not proactively transparent in all its dealings with the tobacco industry”.

Published by under Tobacco companies

Imperial Tobacco stated that it would increase its dividend by a minimum of 10 % in the coming year, demonstrating assurance that cost slices will help it to deal with fragile consumer spending and larger taxes that weighed on its yearly revenue.
