Public Health Minister Steve Brine, said: "Britain is a world leader in tobacco control, and our tough action in the past decade has seen smoking rates in England fall to an all-time low of 15.5%".

However, doctors warned that local authorities, which provide services to help people stop smoking, must be properly funded for the plans to be successful.

Health bosses have announced a "final push" to eradicate smoking in England and create a "smokefree generation".

Duncan Selbie, chief executive of PHE, said: "We are at a pivotal point where an end is in sight and a smoke-free generation a reality".

The body would regularly update its evidence base on e-cigarettes and include the advice in all quit smoking campaign messaging, added the plan.

In addition, the plan prioritised reducing rates of smoking in pregnancy and addressing the huge variation in tobacco use across the country, which disproportionally falls on vulnerable communities.

To achieve this, measures including high taxes on tobacco and mandatory plan packaging will be enforced, while pregnant women, NHS staff and patients will be encouraged to quit in a new drive to improve the nation's health.

The new target is to cut this to 12 per cent or under by 2022, with a target to cut smoking among 15 year olds from 8 per cent to 3 per cent or less.

There are now 7.3 million adult smokers in England and more than 200 people a day die from a smoking-related illness which could have been prevented.

Smoking rates in Britain are at the lowest levels since records began and the number of smokers has fallen by almost two million since the smoking ban was introduced in England a decade ago.

"Smoking continues to kill hundreds of people a day in England, and we know the harms fall hardest on some of the poorest and most vulnerable people in our society".

"To do this we need to shift emphasis from action at the national level - legislation and mandation of services to focused, local action, supporting smokers - particularly in disadvantaged groups - to quit", he said.

"Funding must be found if the government is to achieve its vision of a "smoke-free generation".

The Government has announced plans to cut smoking rates to 12%, about 6 million of the United Kingdom population, by 2022 as part of its Tobacco Control Plan.

Councils in areas with high smoking prevalence will be supported by public health officials to "identify local solutions" to help people stop smoking.

"The tobacco industry should be made to pay a through a licence fee on the "polluter pays" principle", she said.
