Minimum Retail Prices for Cigarettes

The Government has published a Legal Notice to implement minimum prices for the retailing of cigarettes. 

The legal notice gives effect to the measures the Chief Minister introduced in Parliament on Monday as amendments to the Tobacco Act 1997. They are in keeping with the policy objectives pursued by the Government since it was elected in 2011. They give effect to the policy of continued price increases in tobacco and of additional tools being provided to the law enforcement agencies for the control of the tobacco trade in Gibraltar.
