Consultation on standardised packaging of tobacco products
The Welsh Government has worked closely the Department of Health and the Devolved Administrations to develop the the consultation.
It reflects our commitment to address the issues of affordability, attractiveness and access to tobacco products, especially by young people.

- no branding,
- a uniform colour and
- a standard font and text for any writing on the pack.
It seeks views on whether:

- plain packaging should be adopted; or
- a different option should be considered.
