Sir David Amess

The APPG on Smoking and Health would like to pay tribute to Sir David Amess, a strong supporter of a cross party approach to tackling smoking, who backed the 2006 Health Bill amendment passed on a free vote that secured comprehensive Smokefree laws and has since saved thousands of lives.
