Plain cigarette packets planned

13th April 2012

The government wants to see cigarettes sold in plain packaging in England in an attempt to make smoking appear less attractive.

The proposal to strip all branding from cigarette packs is set to go out to proposal and comes as Health Secretary Andrew Lansley told the Times the government did not work with tobacco companies as it wanted them to have “no business” in the UK. Figures show that 5% of 11 to 15-year-olds were regular smokers and the habit led to nearly 100,000 deaths every year in the UK.
