Helping smokers to quit and stay quit

Date posted: 9 March 2011

New measures have been announced and changes proposed in the way that tobacco products can be displayed and consumed in South Australia. Smoking will be banned under covered public transport and taxi waiting areas, and within 10 metres of playgrounds. Additionally, tobacco products will no longer be allowed to be displayed in shops or service stations from January 2012. The Health Minister John Hill has said that the 'ambition is for 100 percent smoke-free outdoor eating and drinking in South Australia' and that it is hoped to be achieved by 2016. A new five year South Australian Tobacco Control Strategy 2011-2016, building on the previous Strategy 2005-2010, has also been drafted and will be circulated for public comment.
