Medical charities have said they are "delighted" that MPs voted to approve plans to ban smoking in cars carrying children.
The British Lung Foundation estimate that more than 430,000 children aged between 11 and 15 are exposed to second-hand smoke in cars every week.
"Having campaigned on this issue for many years, we're absolutely delighted that MPs have backed the ban on smoking in cars carrying children," Dr Penny Woods, the charity's chief executive said.
"This could prove a great leap forward for the health of our nation's children.The introduction of a law that would help prevent hundreds of thousands of children from being exposed to second-hand smoke in the car is now within reach.
