continue to defend tobacco legislation against legal challenges by the tobacco industry, including legislation to stop tobacco sales from vending machines from October 2011
continue to follow a policy of using tax to maintain the high price of tobacco products at levels that impact on smoking prevalence
promote effective local enforcement of tobacco legislation, particularly on the age of sale of tobacco
encourage more smokers to quit by using the most effective forms of support, through local stop smoking services
publish a 3-year marketing strategy for tobacco control
