Anti-smoking law due in Scotland26th February 2009
The Scottish government has decided that cigarette vending machines will be outlawed as part of new laws aimed at tackling young smokers.
Scottish Public Health Minister Shona Robson said: "The measures in this bill are aimed at stopping children starting to smoke in the first place, by making it less accessible and less attractive to them." The government wants to decrease the number of young smokers in Scotland to under 23% by 2012.
