Ginny Chadwick, the director of the Preventing Tobacco Addiction Foundation, held her first meetings in Tasmania on Monday to try to persuade parliamentarians to support raising the purchasing age for tobacco products to 21.

She said evidence in the United States showed that the implementation of so- called Tobacco 21 had cut smoking rates.

"Every time we stop a young person taking up smoking, we are saving lives," Ms Chadwick said.
