The Government's decision to shelve plans to introduce plain cigarette packaging is "bewildering", British Lung Foundation chief executive Dr Penny Woods said today.
Dr Woods said:
Cigarette packaging is designed to make a deadly product attractive to young people and create future generations of smokers.
Over 200,000 young people have started smoking since the Government began its consultation on standardised packaging, while more than 100,000 people have died as a result of their habit.
Using expensively-designed packaging to sell cigarettes to young people is wrong and should be stopped.
