I am pleased that the Government have announced a clampdown on the sales of vapes to children. For too long rogue businesses have shamefully been promoting the use of colourful and flavoured vapes marketed to appeal to children.

So, I am pleased that the Government’s new measures will include:

  • Making it easier to fine shops selling to under 18s
  • Reviewing the sale of nicotine free vapes to under 18s
  • Updating the school curriculum to teach kids about harmful effects of vaping
  • Giving new resources for local police to kick vapes out of schools

The health and wellbeing of all of our children is a top priority and I welcome these measures to tackle the issue of underage vaping.
