Ban smoking in cars?
Anti-smoking group Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) says serious thought should be given to a ban on smoking in cars.
In a report which says smoking costs the NHS 2.7 billion pounds a year, the lobby group argues that millions of children and young people are exposed to second-hand smoke in vehicles every day.
Similar bans are in place elsewhere in the world and a poll shows that the British public also supports such action.
Pro-smoking groups say such suggestions are just an attempt to stigmatise smokers and bully them into quitting. Lobby group Forest says such moves are an attack on the freedoms of adult smokers.
