Forest news & comment

Enjoyment of smoking, not addiction, is the primary reason confirmed smokers light up.

Forest has criticised MPs who want the government to publish a new Tobacco Control Plan "without further delay".

Prime minister Theresa May urged to “restore fairness” to the nation’s seven million smokers.

Forest has slammed Aberdeenshire Council's new smoke-free policy that prohibits smoking and the use of e-cigarettes on all council sites.

Only one prosecution since was smoking in cars with children was banned a year ago shows law was "unnecessary" and "unenforceable".

Banning smoking in public parks and play areas would be "unwarranted", "Orwellian" and a "gross over-reaction" say campaigners.

Proposals to make the streets around Birmingham Children's Hospital a smoke free zone have been criticised by campaigners.

Forest has criticised the use of taxpayers' money to promote an anti-smoking campaign on Facebook.
