Tobacco control sought The Cancer Society has congratulated members of the Maori Affairs Select Committee for their recommendation follow- ing the inquiry into the tobacco industry in New Zealand and the consequences of tobacco use for Maori. The report includes many of the measures that the tobacco control community and the New Zealand public agree will move New Zea- land towards becoming a smoke free nation. When the recommendations are adopted it will return New Zealand to the forefront of tobacco control in the world,'' says Health promotion manager Dr Jan Pearson. Hundreds of people from all over the country have put an enormous amount of time and effort into this process. The select committee's report proves that their efforts have been acknowledged and that there is a strong will to control tobacco in Aotearoa. Media, cancer control agencies and governments all over the world are watching to see how New Zealand moves.'' The Society believes that now it is the Government's turn to take the committee's recommendations on board and take this oppor- tunity to demonstrate inter- national leadership. The current National-led government has already strongly supported effec- tive quit services. We believe acceptance of the recommendations will prove that the Government is committed to the health and wellbeing of all our citizens, especially vulnerable groups who suffer the most harm from tobacco and smoking. We would like to thank all Cancer Society supporters and partners who have given us their valuable feedback and support and encourage us to continue our tobacco control efforts for the ben- efit of all New Zealanders.''
