The objectives of the tobacco control plan are to:
reduce the number of 15 year olds who regularly smoke from 8% to 3% or less
reduce smoking among adults in England from 15.5% to 12% or less
reduce the inequality gap in smoking prevalence, between those in routine and manual occupations and the general population
reduce the prevalence of smoking in pregnancy from 10.7% to 6% or less
The aim is to achieve these objectives by the end of 2022.
The fourth bullet point has been corrected: 'reduce the prevalence of smoking in pregnancy from 10.5% to 6% or less' has been changed to 'reduce the prevalence of smoking in pregnancy from 10.7% to 6% or less'. The document has not changed.
