Will the GEG Be Constitutional?

The smoking generational endgame bill has been an ongoing debate both among policymakers and the public, with the bill yet to be properly tabled and passed in Parliament. The latest iteration, the Control of Smoking Products for Public Health Bill, was last planned to be tabled on 10th October, but was pulled at the last minute. Now, with uncertainty over what would happen next, we take a look at the concerns over the constitutionality of such a ban with lawyer Lim Wei Jiet.
