Health Minister to consult public on smoking ban in cars

The Welsh Government have announced they will introduce a law which will ban smoking in cars when children are present.

Legislation around smoking is a devolved matter, and so would only apply to Wales.

The Welsh Government will soon open a consultation on the proposal, and the Health Minister urges the public to have their say.

Mark Drakeford AM said: "We now believe the introduction of regulations to prohibit smoking in private vehicles carrying under-18s is needed as the final piece in the jigsaw to eliminate the harm and end persistent inequalities in exposure."
