2.2. Andrew Landsley - he is the secretary of state for Health and overall responsible. At the moment there has just been announced a ban to stop advertising all cigarettes in supermarkets to stop them being on show to the public. There is also more speculation that cigarettes could have no advertising on at all and just come in black packaging. Andrew spoke about his views "Smoking remains one of the most significant challenges to public health. Each year it accounts for over 100,000 deaths in the UK and one in two long-term smokers will die prematurely from a smoking disease. “That is why the health ministers across the UK have a responsibility to look closely at initiatives that might encourage smokers to quit and stop young people taking up smoking in the first place.”
