Wondering if I haven't misunderstood this: heard the EOT (GNTO) office on Kef is being transferred to Patras.

Tough EU smoking rules approved

Anti-smoking legislation is to be introduced across the European Union in an attempt to cut the number of smokers by 2.4 million.

The rules, voted in by the European Parliament, mean picture health warnings will have to dominate the front and back of all packaging.

There will also be a ban on flavoured, such as menthol, cigarettes.

Pro-smoking groups have criticised a "nanny state mentality", but cancer charities have backed the measures.

An estimated 700,000 premature deaths are caused by smoking across the EU each year.
