ASH Wales has welcomed the Welsh Government’s ambitious plans to reduce adult smoking rates to 16% by 2020 as one of a range of measures announced by the Health Minister during a debate at the Senedd yesterday.

New figures released today by public health charity ASH Wales show that each day in Wales an estimated 38 teenagers who have never smoked before try smoking cigarettes, introducing them to a truly deadly product. The figures have been released ahead of a major conference taking place in Cardiff later this week.
