HC Deb 14 July 1992 vol 211 c668W
29. Mr. Flynn

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what new initiatives she intends to introduce to reduce illnesses and deaths caused by smoking.

Dr. Mawhinney

The "Health of the Nation" White Paper commits us to ambitious targets to reduce smoking further. It sets out a comprehensive strategy to achieve these targets, including action on price, health education, ensuring effective controls on advertising and a greater national health service role in reducing smoking.
