Gateshead Council endorsement of the APPG Recommendations to support the Tobacco Control Plan 2021

The updated Tobacco Control Plan is due for release later this year. The All Party Parliamentary Group on Smoking and Health (APPG) commissioned a report detailing recommendations to support the new Plan. These recommendations are vital if we are to achieve a smoking prevalence of less than 5% by 2030. This is an essential step towards reducing inequalities and increasing healthy life years, as half the difference in life expectancy between the richest and poorest in society is due to smoking. Cabinet is asked to endorse the proposed recommendations.
