Tobacco Advertising and Promotion Act 2002

Section 7: Developments in technology

32.This section enables the Secretary of State to make an order to amend the provisions of the Act concerning publication or distribution of tobacco advertisements by electronic means in the light of technological developments if he considers this to be appropriate. The reason for taking this power is that the pace of technological change in this area makes it very difficult to predict what new means of publishing or distributing may emerge.
