While publicly proposed, of course, a plan to phase out smoking in the UK does not appear to have been adopted.

Please update me if you see otherwise.

Open consultation closes on 6 December, seems quite a task for government to create and pass the necessary laws and/or regulations in 2023.

What does 'publicly adopt' mean here please?

@WXTJ Good question. For the purposes of this market will consider a plan "publicly adopted" once the government has created and passed the necessary laws and/or regulations, and then formally announced these changes to the public.

Implementation and enforcement, while crucial for the effectiveness of the plan, come after the plan is already publicly adopted.

So, for example, if laws or regulations are publicly announced this year, but enforcement of those regulations will not come until some point in the future, the question will resolve as "YES."
