Forest has criticised plans to extend the smoking ban in Wales to outdoor areas including hospital grounds, school grounds and playgrounds by summer 2019.

Forest has called for an independent "root and branch" review of the impact of all tobacco regulations introduced in the UK since 2010, including plain packaging and the behind-the-counter display ban.

Reports suggest Minister for Health Simon Harris will today ask for Cabinet approval for a proposal tabled by Fine Gael Senators.

Attempts to reduce the amount of smoking on TV and in films would be a “gross attack on artistic freedom” and a “worrying attempt to rewrite history”, says Forest.
