Why is UK Banning Smoking?
Well, the answer is pretty obvious, it develops diseases that in return put pressure on the health system of the government. The government officials responded to the latest reports, by saying that the habit is environmentally dangerous and unhealthy. Rishi Sunak has pledged to make the country smoke-free by 2030 as it has been taking steps to reduce smoking, the statement said.
The measures include different incentives to motivate the public to reduce their reliance on smoking. The anti-smoking measures are expected to include free vape kits and incentives for pregnant women to quit smoking. Companies will also be forced to consult authorities for cigarette pack inserts.
