§ Mr. Michael Brown
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what expenditure his Department makes on anti-smoking campaigns other than in grants to Action on Smoking and Health and the Health Education Authority in the current year; and what expenditure is planned in this area in 1989–90.
§ Mr. Freeman
Other than money made available to the Health Education Authority and Action on Smoking and Health, the Department did not separately spend any money on specific anti-smoking campaigns in 1988–89 although the "Look After Your Heart" campaign did include a component of advice on giving up smoking. Consideration is currently being given to a campaign to discourage teenage smoking. The amount of expenditure this might involve has not yet been decided.
