Motion: S4M-11723 Scottish Smoker Numbers Fall Sharply

26 Nov 2014

That the Parliament welcomes the recent report by the Office for National Statistics, which shows that the number of Scottish smokers has shrunk from 46% of the population to 21% in 40 years; considers that this is significant with regard to improving public health; will strive to do all that it can to educate people about the dangers of cigarettes, and hopes that the uptake of smoking continues to fall in the years ahead.
