A cabinet minister who developed lung cancer has expressed concern about the long-term effects of vaping after an influential report recommended relaxing restrictions on e-cigarettes.

James Brokenshire, the communities secretary, who has never smoked but had surgery this year to remove a third of his lung, said he wanted “to be cautious about what the long-term impacts of this are and how . . . it is less harmful, but it is not necessarily harmless”.
