Doctors say raise taxes on smoking

8th September 2008

The Royal College of Physicians has called on the government to put a target in place to stop the population smoking by 2025.

The College has released a report, Ending Tobacco Smoking in Britain, which says taxes on cigarettes should be put up by 10% annually. Professor John Britton, chair of the college's tobacco advisory group, said: "Now is the time to say we need to get rid of this. We could do it if we did everything we know how to do."
