Cigarette boxes will be required to carry health warning images on top half of the packets.

Starting in December, the top half of cigarette packs will be required to carry health warning images.

The decision was reached on Friday by the Regulatory Reform Committee, based on a request made by the Ministry of Health which claimed displaying graphic warnings on packs would reduce smoking rates and improve the well being of society.

Prior to the decision, there had been much debate between the two governmental bodies on whether tabacco companies should have the freedom to decide where warning pictures should be placed.
