BMA Cymru Wales has welcomed the Welsh Government's move to introduce a ban on smoking in cars with children.
This is an important step forward in reducing tobacco harm by stopping children from being exposed to second-hand smoke in private vehicles.
Children are still developing physically and, as a result, they are more susceptible to the harmful effects of second-hand smoke.
Adults who smoke in the presence of children are not acting in the children’s best interest; therefore it is the Welsh Government’s duty to change legislation in order to protect them.
Let us know what you think of these proposals by emailing us on email@example.com, or getting in touch on twitter @itvwales.
