Jim Hume says similar laws have been successfully introduced in countries like Australia and Canada.

"Well I have a lot of support. The Royal College of Physicians are backing me, British Medical Association, British Heart Foundaton, British Lung Foundation, and Cancer Research UK are all backing me and will be helping me with this bill."
