The United Kingdom is a world leader in tobacco control and the government has a proven track record in reducing harm caused by tobacco, through the introduction of standardised packaging, the display ban on tobacco in small shops, and ending smoking in cars with children.

The Government is developing a new tobacco control plan which will build on our success in reducing smoking rates to date.
