HL Deb 16 November 1982 vol 436 c519WA
Lord Wallace of Coslany

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they endorse the view that, for those who continue to smoke, it is better for them to smoke cigarettes that are classified as low tar in the tar and nicotine table determined by the Government chemist.

Lord Trefgarne

Yes, but the benefits are very much less than those derived from not smoking at all.
