asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he last met the British Medical Association; if the sponsorship of sporting events by tobacco companies was discussed; and if he will make a statement.

I last met the British Medical Association on 7 February. We discussed sports sponsorship by tobacco companies and the voluntary agreement between the industry and the Government which restricts it. I shall, of course, take the BMA's views into account in considering the voluntary agreement, which runs until at least 31 December 1985.
