ASH Daily News for 17 September 2008
According to the Liberal Democrats, smokers and those who are overweight should be taxed more heavily than those who exercise and give up cigarettes. The party wants to reward people who lose weight and follow a healthy lifestyle with tax breaks.  It proposes giving local health boards the power to offer tax breaks to those who sign up for gym memberships or go for regular medical check-ups. But critics warned that it was wrong to penalise those whose lifestyles do not live up to the Lib Dems "rose-tinted" view of how to live. The Liberal Democrats claim a "fundamental shift of power" is needed from Whitehall to ... market research, surveys and trends

They have proposed that the best way to reduce the exposure of children to tobacco advertising is to ban such ads from all magazines. ...
