Retail group accused of being front for big tobacco

From Morning Report, 7:25 am on 5 May 2010

Anti-tobacco group ASH is accusing a fledgling retail group of being a front for tobacco company interests. The Association of Community Retailers was set up last month to oppose legislation which raised tobacco prices, as well as any move to cover up tobacco branding and advertising. ASH says the group has close links to public relations consultant, Glenn Inwood who represents Imperial Tobacco.
