This debate in partnership with health think tank 2020 Health and Cancer Research UK will focus on the effect of packaging in the marketing of products such as cigarettes, that are legal to market, sell and use, but deleterious to health.
The smoking ban in public places and business came into force in Scotland on March 26th 2006; Wales on April 2nd; and Northern Ireland on April 30th. England enforced the ban a year later on July 1st 2007. Since the introduction of the ban, there has been a significant reduction in the number of smoking related hospital admissions for heart attacks, stroke and respiratory disease. These findings have been reiterated in many international studies. Smoking bans have been widely hailed as successful at improving health around the world. The Point of Sale Display Ban (POSD) was also introduced in England on 6 April 2012 making it illegal to display tobacco products at the point of sale in large stores, and in small stores from 6 April 2015.
