Australia cigarette plain packaging law upheld by court

E-mail Print PDF

Plain packaging law in AustraliaThe [Australian] federal government has secured a big win over big tobacco with the High Court ruling Labor's world-first plain packaging laws are constitutionally valid.

The legal victory means all cigarettes and tobacco products will have to be sold in drab olive-brown packs from December.

Large graphic health warnings will dominate the packs and the manufacturers' brand names - such as Camel or Winfield Blue - will be written in a small generic font.

Although the court handed down its decision on Wednesday the reasons for judgment won't be revealed until later in the year.
