BBC News – Staffordshire councils review tobacco pension investments

BBC News – Staffordshire councils review tobacco pension investments.

The Politics Show West Midlands recently reported the scale of  pension fund investments in tobacco companies in the region.  Now Staffordshire Council has announced a review.

With over 1800 people a year being killed by smoking in Staffordshire, one wonders how the council can lead on public health from April if it continues to invest in tobacco.

Newcastle City Council’s leader has clearly stated his intention to pursue this issue in Tyne and Wear.  Let us hope that others like Staffordshire follow suit.
