Smoking Cessation

EDM number 999 in 2017-19, proposed by David TC Davies on 27/02/2018.
Categorised under the topic of Smoking.

That this House congratulates Norway on the extraordinary plunge in its smoking rate among young women from 30 per cent to just 1 per cent since 2001; applauds Sweden on getting its adult smoking rate down to 5 per cent; notes that the Scandinavian success story in ending smoking has been primarily driven by the use of snus; welcomes the decisions by Switzerland and New Zealand to end their bans on snus and the current European Court of Justice review on the EU prohibition; further notes that snus is used as an alternative to smoking by footballers including Jamie Vardy and Zlatan Ibrahimovic and would like all UK smokers to have this option to help them give up; and urges the Government to consider ending its ban on snus in order to help reduce smoking rates in the UK.

This motion has been signed by a total of 10 MPs.
