Explores labeling issues for cigarettes.
- 13 Dec 1991 PM grudgingly agrees to add warning labels to cigarette packs sold in foreign countries
- In this document, PM announces that it will add warning labels to cigarettes in many foreign countries, apparently as a response to a stockholder proposal put forth by Father Michael Crosby of the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility. A Q&A "prep sheet" at the last half of the document asks if PM has done this as a response to a "pressure group," and PM responds that it does not negotiate with pressure groups. AT the same time, a timeline for implementation of the new plan says to "Notify Crosby and request withdrawal of proposal."
