The Welsh Government will consider pursuing a ban on smoking in cars carrying children if children’s exposure to SHS in cars does not start to fall within the next three years. To help inform this decision, the Welsh Government wishes to commission a research project that will assess the impact that the Fresh Start Wales campaign has on children’s exposure and attitudes to smoking in cars.
The Contractor will undertake a cross—sectional study of Year 6 school children in Wales, from a nationally representative sample of state maintained primary schools, during the Summer term of 2013.
