The legal smoking age could rise to 21 under 'radical' plans from Sajid Javid to cut the number of smokers to just five per cent of Britons by 2030.

The health secretary commissioned an independent review into the tobacco industry, which is expected to recommend a rise to the purchase age of cigarettes, as well as new taxes for company profits.

It is also likely to suggest the NHS does more to promote e-cigarettes and vapes to smokers, sources say. 

Smoking has decreased since 1974, with around 15 per cent of the population smoking in 2019. That year, the Government set a target of becoming smoke-free by 2030
