That the Parliament congratulates the University of Stirling’s Institute for Social Marketing and Health on its 40th anniversary; recognises what it sees as the Institute’s substantial contribution to the development of public health policy and practice in Scotland; notes what it considers the pivotal role that the Institute’s staff have played in conducting research on smoke-free public places legislation, smoke-free prisons, plain cigarette packaging, minimum unit pricing and other public health successes, and wishes the Institute, its researchers and partners continued success in improving Scotland's health.
