MP for Stevenage, Stephen McPartland MP is supporting the British Lung Foundation’s Children’s Charter campaign. He recently attended the BLF’s parliamentary launch and met the British Lung Foundation’s young campaign champions who explained the charity’s action plan to improve children’s lung health in the UK.
Stephen said, “I am delighted to support the British Lung Foundation’s Children’s Charter and believe it is important that adults are encouraged to protect children from the dangers of passive smoke.”
Dame Helena Shovelton, Chief Executive for the BLF said: “The number of children whose lungs are being damaged by adults lighting up when children are in the car is alarming. We are calling on all children who want to put an end to passive smoking to add their voice to the BLF’s campaign by going to www.lunguk.org/childrenscharter.
