Fag machines are going to be banned and the sale of vapes to under 18s is to be outlawed.

Minister for Health, Simon Harris, got the unanimous backing of his ministerial colleagues when he brought the two measures before Cabinet yesterday.

Mr Harris has taken up the reins from previous health ministers Leo Varadkar and James Reilly in the Government’s determined battle against tobacco.

The latest restrictions are part of the Public Health (Tobacco and Nicotine Inhaling Products) Bill, which has now been introduced by Mr Harris.
