Plain packaging has been campaigned for by doctors for some time - it's introduction I support.

Like many I needed to be convicted on the evidence that this was a change that would achieve its clear aims - namely the reduction in cancer deaths. I have met with many of the key local activists, and the north east campaign groups over the last few years, and consulted a variety of medical professionals, and we have debated this in the commons and I will be supporting this policy move when it comes to the House of Commons.
