§ Mr. Pavitt
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if the speech made by the Under-Secretary of State at the fourth world conference on smoking and health still represents the policy of Her Majesty's Government.
§ Mr. Patrick Jenkin
I endorse the theme of the speech by my hon. Friend, the Under-Secretary of State at the fourth world conference where he singled out smoking as the major challenge for preventive medicine and confirmed that this Government remain committed to pursuing policies to reduce the toll of illness which smoking causes.
