New Govt Anti Smoking Proposals (Video)

Saturday, May 31, 2008

The government is proposing an overhaul of the way cigarettes are sold and packaged in a bid to cut smoking. The plans include removing branding on packets, outlawing cigarette vending machines and banning packets of ten.

The Department of Health is also considering introducing minimum pack sizes of 20 to prevent teenagers who can only afford packs of 10 buying cigarettes and a ban on the advertising of cigarette papers.

It has released The Future of Tobacco Control consultation document in a bid to cut smoking rates and prevent young people from starting the habit.

More than 200,000 under-16s start smoking each year and are three times more likely to die of cancer than someone who starts in their mid-20s, according to government figures.

Public Health Minister Dawn Primarolo said: "Protecting children from smoking is a Government priority and taking away temptation is one way to do this.

"If banning brightly-coloured packets, removing cigarettes from display and removing the cheap option of a pack of ten helps save lives, then that is what we should do.

"But we want to hear everyone's views first."

Research had found children and young people are more receptive to tobacco advertising than adults, the DoH said.

Simon Clark, director of the smokers' lobby group Forest, disagrees with the Government's proposals.

He believes the measures will make smoking "more attractive" to teenagers rather than discouraging them.

"The best way to tackle youth smoking is through education and proper enforcement of the legal age limit," he said.

"Banning point of sale display will make smoking even more attractive to teenagers. Worse, it will drive many smokers towards cheaper counterfeit and smuggled cigarettes.

"Yet again freedom of choice and personal responsibility are being sacrificed by politicians who think they know best.

"What next? Are they going to ban the display of alcohol and confectionery?"

However, the proposals were welcomed by anti-smoking pressure group Action on Smoking and Health.

Ash director Deborah Arnott said: "Smoking is a habit which is passed down from generation to generation and this pattern can only be broken by fresh thinking and a comprehensive cross-government strategy."
