Some shop owners have started using blinds to cover tobacco products in the shop instead of covering windows with foil.
The law states that tobacco products cannot be on display in a shop for underage people to see, M1 reported. Wednesday’s cabinet meeting will address the issue, the report said.
The opposition LMP party said the law on tobacconists, just past its second-year anniversary, is flawed on many accounts. Ákos Hadházy, the party’s spokesperson, said the law had paved the way to corruption, a strengthening of the black market for tobacco, the demise of small shops and crime in tobacco shops.
He called on the government to axe the law.
