Plain speaking on plain packaging revisited

Tomorrow marks the first anniversary of the full implementation of plain packaging of tobacco in the UK.

On February 24, 2015, Forest hosted An Evening of Plain Speaking on Plain Packaging.

Speakers included Angela Harbutt (Hands Off Our Packs), John O'Connell (TaxPayers Alliance), Dr Madsen Pirie (Adam Smith Institute), Emily Barley (Conservatives for Liberty), Rory Broomfield (The Freedom Association), Claire Fox (Institute of Ideas), Chris Snowdon and Mark Littlewood (Institute of Economic Affairs).

The arguments against standardised or 'plain' packs are as relevant today as they were then. So here's the video featuring the edited highlights of what, if I say so myself, was a rather splendid event. Standing ovations all round!!
