IEA slams London Health Commission’s calls on public health
The IEA mark the launch of EPICENTER with a two day conference in Brussels
Reviving contracting-out of the state pension will benefit millions in retirement
Mark Littlewood comments on the recommendations of the London Health Commission report
“This is an outrageous attack on personal freedom. Banning smoking in 40% of the capital is a slippery slope on the path to banning smoking altogether, which would lead to more smokers buying dangerous, black-market products containing high levels of chemicals.
“This raft of nanny-state initiatives will place strict controls on businesses and limit choice for consumers, likely pushing up prices for both. Politicians must avoid this sort of heavy-handed interference in the lives of ordinary Londoners, especially at a time when many are struggling with rising living costs.”
