BBC Radio 4 – You and Yours, Tobacco Funding

BBC Radio 4 – You and Yours,  Tobacco Funding.

I made a brief appearance on the BBC radio 4 consumer programme You and Yours today, as a pre-recorded intro to a debate featuring Newcastle City Council leader Cllr Nick Forbes, who is taking a strong lead in advocating for local authority pension funds to withdraw from tobacco investments.

Nick made a strong case that it makes no sense for local authorities to invest in smoking cessation services and tobacco control, while at the same time investing in tobacco companies that seek to maximise sales of tobacco.

Well worth a listen.  The item can be heard on BBC iPlayer via the link and is the last item on the programme.
