Will plain cigarette packaging make smoking less attractive?
Cigarette packets should have plain packaging to make smoking less attractive, ministers have suggested. Would this be a deterrent?
The government plans to ask retailers to cover up displays of cigarettes so that children are not attracted by the packaging.
The Department of Health is considering the idea of asking tobacco companies to show only basic information and health or picture warnings on their packets.
Would this deter children from starting smoking? Are you a smoker? Are you trying to stop smoking? Would these measures help you? Does packaging help recruit smokers?
