The ban on smoking in cars with children

Print Email

MWF welcomes the news that MPs have voted in favour of legislation giving the health secretary powers to introduce a ban on smoking in cars with children. Read the publication of the 2010 RCP report, Passive smoking and children.

Every year, over 160,000 children are adversely affected by second-hand smoking, costing the NHS in England over £23 million. The introduction of a ban on smoking in cars with children will be a big step forward in protecting our children from the harm caused by passive smoking.
