Motion on the fall in smoking rates in Scotland

*S4M-14057 Stewart Maxwell: Smoking Rates Fall in Scotland - That the Parliament welcomes the findings of the Scottish Household Survey 2014, which indicates that smoking rates have declined at their fastest rate since 1999; understands that 20% of adults in Scotland now smoke, which constitutes a drop of 3% over the previous three years; is encouraged that smoking rates in the most deprived areas have dropped from 40% in 2010 to 34% in 2014, and congratulates all those people and organisations that are working towards the Scottish Government’s objective of a smoke-free Scotland by 2034.

The Scottish Parliament’s website has published the official report from Tuesday’s evidence session on the Health (Tobacco, Nicotine etc and Care) (Scotland) Bill. ASH Scotland Chief Executive Sheila Duffy was among those who gave evidence to the committee.

PQ S4W-27155

Jackson Carlaw (West Scotland) (Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party): To ask the Scottish Government whether it has assessed the report commissioned by Public Health England, E-cigarettes: an evidence update, and, if so, what (a) its position is on the findings and (b) implications the report will have on the advice provided by NHS Scotland's smoking cessation services. (S4W-27155).

Maureen Watt: The Public Health England report is a welcome addition to the evidence base around e-cigarettes as the Scottish Government continues to develop its overall policy around e-cigarettes. Current evidence suggests e-cigarettes are far less harmful than tobacco and if using them helps smokers quit entirely then that is to be welcomed. Anyone using an e-cigarette to help them quit will most likely see the best results if they do this alongside the support of their local stop smoking services. Scottish Government is working with smoking cessation services in Scotland to explore how they can best help users of e-cigarettes to quit tobacco for good. Further research on the long-term health impacts of e-cigarettes is needed, and we will continue to monitor evidence. Our Health Bill strikes a balance between regulating e-cigarettes and helping those who wish to use them to help stop smoking. By doing so we hope both to prevent smoking from appearing normal again, but also gain the public health benefits from reductions in the use of cigarettes.
