Smoking and the law

Smoking has been illegal in the UK in public places like pubs, cinemas and on public transport and in all workplaces since 2007. (Health Act 2006). This law also made it illegal to sell any form of tobacco product to anyone younger than 18 years of age.

The Health Act 2009 made it illegal to sell tobacco products from vending machines after October 2011.

From April 2012, major retailers like supermarkets cannot openly display tobacco products for sale. This restriction will be extended to include small shops from 2015.
