1400 Voices Demand Flavour Ban

ASH urges the Labour government to prioritize reintroducing the Tobacco and Vapes Bill to reduce smoking's impact on health inequality and productivity. Over 1400 health experts support the initiative to end smoking, highlighting the economic and health benefits. The Bill aims to restrict tobacco sales to those born after 2009, limit vape access to children, and close regulatory gaps for nicotine products, promoting a smoke-free UK. Experts emphasize the urgency of implementing regulations against marketing vapes to minors while supporting adult smokers. The initiative aligns with Labour's commitment to public health and could lead the UK in reducing smoking-related harm globally.


12.90% of the adult population are current smokers. There are approximately 7.2 million current smokers in United Kingdom 14.60% of men are current smokers but only 11.20% of women.
