Nick Harris is the corporate affairs manager of Gallaher Tobacco Company, also known as Gallaher Group, the British subsidiary of Japan Tobacco. In February of 2009, he was reported as having invited a number of aides and researchers who work for Members of the British Parliament to a celebrity dance show called the "Strictly Come Dancing" at the 02 Arena at the Millennium Dome in London. Tickets to the event were valued at 47.25 British pounds (about US$69.00). The invitation was made in advance of legislation in Britain that would ban the display of cigarettes.
