asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will make a study of the health implications and the additional £5,000,000 campaign to promote cigarettes, including a £13,500,000 money-off door-to-door offer, evidence of which has been supplied to him: and if he will now take steps to ban door-to-door promotion of cigarettes.

Friend is referring to a particular firm's project involving the distribution of promotional literature to 13,500,000 homes as part of a promotional effort which might cost £5 million in total. I would therefore refer him to my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Brent, South (Mr. Pavitt) on 26th May.—[Vol. 950, c. 795–6.]
