Imperial Tobacco's challenge on Scottish tobacco vending law to be heard on Monday

09 November, 2012

The legal challenge by Imperial Tobacco against the Scottish Government’s legislation to ban unstaffed tobacco vending machines and tobacco displays at point-of-sale will be heard in court from Monday.

Despite having twice been upheld by the Scottish courts, Imperial Tobacco brought its legal challenge on the basis that the Scottish Parliament doesn’t have the right to legislate on the sale of goods in Scotland.

Legislation on retail tobacco displays for larger retailers was already introduced in England in April earlier this year. Legislation for Northern Ireland came into force at the end of last month and is due to start in Wales on December 3.
