Consultation on standardised packaging of tobacco products
The Welsh Government has worked closely the Department of Health and the Devolved Administrations to develop the the consultation.
It reflects our commitment to address the issues of affordability, attractiveness and access to tobacco products, especially by young people.
We encourage people in Wales to give their views on whether tobacco packing should remain unchanged, plain packaging should be adopted or a different option should be considered
The consultation suggests for the first time what requirements for standardised packaging could consist of, including:
- no branding,
- a uniform colour and
- a standard font and text for any writing on the pack.
It seeks views on whether:
- tobacco packaging should remain unchanged
- plain packaging should be adopted; or
- a different option should be considered.
Respondents are encouraged to provide their views online, but responses can be made in any of the following ways:
