Forest has urged the Scottish Government to reject proposals to ban the use of electronic cigarettes in enclosed public places and prohibit advertisements for "the fastest growing supermarket product of 2014".

Forest has described Public Health England's new anti-smoking campaign as "rotten", "poisonous" and an "abuse of public money".

Campaigners have slammed a decision by the Advertising Standards Authority to ban two e-cigarette television advertisements that feature a woman exhaling vapour.

Prohibiting smoking in cars with children is "unnecessary", "excessive" and a "gross intrusion on people's privacy", says Forest.

Campaigners have urged the Government to abandon plans to introduce plain packaging of tobacco.

A leading industry publisher has called for more groups like Forest "to voice their support for smokers/vapers' rights".

The smokers’ group Forest will tonight mark its 35th anniversary with a special smoker-friendly party in London.

The smokers' group Forest has slammed calls for Trafalgar Square, Parliament Square and 20,000 acres of parks in the capital to go smoke free.

A petition against plain packaging of tobacco has gained more than 100,000 signatures and more than 50,000 people have personally written to the Prime Minister opposing the initiative.

Forest has described as “inexplicable” a decision by the Advertising Standards Authority to reject a complaint about a television advertisement for the NHS smoke free campaign.
