HC Deb 26 February 1963 vol 672 c152W
Mr. H. Clark

asked the Minister of Health, in view of the fact that cigar smoking is probably less injurious to health than cigarette smoking, what steps he is taking to encourage habitual smokers to smoke cigars rather than cigarettes.

Mr. Braine

None. The aim is to discourage smoking. It has been made widely known that cigarette smoking is particularly dangerous to health.
