Smoking Still Kills



Smoking Still Kills

The five-year strategy set out in the Government’s Tobacco Control Plan for England comes to an end in 2015. Smoking Still Kills proposes new targets for a renewed national strategy to accelerate the decline in smoking prevalence over the next decade. The report sets out short-term objectives and longer term aims and develops the agenda for tobacco control launched in 2008 with Beyond Smoking Kills.
A key recommendation of Smoking Still Kills is for the Government to impose an annual levy on tobacco companies and for the money raised to be used to pay for measures such as mass media campaigns and stop smoking services.
The recommendations have been developed by an editorial board in consultation with an advisory board of academics and experts, and following feedback from four regional events with local and national tobacco control professionals.
