British MPs: Cigarettes only for 21 years – Politics

The group of British parliamentarians who make up the Bipartisan Parliamentary Group on Smoking and Health urges the government to consider raising the age of legal cigarette buyers to 21 to end the “tobacco epidemic” by 2030.

The chairman of the parliamentary group that launched the appeal, Bob Blackman, stressed that cigarette makers “have money, so they should be forced to pay to end the epidemic (smoking – ed.).”

According to surveys available to parliamentarians, 76 percent. Britons support the goal of making Britain a tobacco-free country by 2030.
