ASH and Breathe2025 response to Advancing our health: prevention in the 2020s

In October 2019, ASH and Breathe 2025 responded to the Department of Health and Social Care’s consultation ‘Advancing our health: prevention in the 2020s’. The response endorses the proposal in the Green Paper to impose a ‘polluter pays’ charge on the tobacco industry to raise revenue, and emphasises the urgent need to address health inequalities in order to meet the Government’s ambition to end smoking by 2030.
