Forest has criticised plans to make the streets around Birmingham Children's Hospital a smoke free zone

"The BMA has taken leave of its senses. E-cigarettes are often used by smokers who are trying to quit."

Forest has urged public health minister Jane Ellison to "politely decline" an award she has been given by the World Health Organisation to mark World No Tobacco Day.

Forest calls on government to put the interests of legitimate retailers and consumers ahead of the demands of the tobacco control industry.

"Tobacco is not an illegal substance yet the government is persecuting a minority. I think that's a disgrace in a social democracy."
