Abstract
The Scottish Government's 2008 document "Scotland's Future is Smoke-Free: A Smoking Prevention Action Plan" (Donnelley RR, 2008) is set within the over-arching policy context of "A Breath of Fresh Air for Scotland" (Scottish Executive, 2004). Both have at their heart an aspiration for a smoke free Scotland. The Smoking Prevention Action Plan sets out a programme of measures and actions with the aim of preventing children and young people from smoking. The main approaches of the action plan are to promote healthy lifestyles and to reduce the attractiveness, availability and affordability of cigarettes to children and young people.
