UK delays decision on cigarette branding ban
LONDON, July 12
LONDON, July 12 (Reuters) - The British government on Friday pushed back plans to ban company branding on cigarette packets, saying that it wanted to first see the impact of a similar decision in Australia.
The government published the results of a consultation on plain packaging which showed 53 percent of respondents in favour of the measure, but said it had decided to wait until the impact of the Australian ban could be measured.
