Letter: In brief

Sir: So the tobacco industry is still claiming that an advertising ban will not reduce consumption and might increase it ("`Tobacco ads face ban by end of year", 18 June)? If they really believed that they would of course support the ban, which will save them the cost of their very considerable advertising budgets.
