Article: 52/2510

Further actions to stop young people taking up smoking and raise a tobacco-free generation have been outlined in the Scottish Government’s updated Tobacco Control Action Plan.

The five-year plan sets out 44 specific actions to address health inequalities and cut smoking rates in the communities where people find it most difficult to quit. These include legislating to restrict smoking around hospital buildings, banning tobacco in prisons and establishing a new national brand for the stop-smoking service.
