§ Mr. Coaker
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment he has made of the impact on cigarette consumption of the withdrawal of Gratis points; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Yvette Cooper
No separate assessment has been made of the impact on cigarette consumption from withdrawal of Gratis points. We have estimated that the ban on advertising, promotion and sponsorship of tobacco will result in a 2.5 per cent. reduction in consumption. This would mean that about 3,000 lives a year could be saved in the long term.
