A draft scheme to introduce a ban on the sale of e-cigarettes to under-18s and on the sale of tobacco products from vending machines at venues where children might be present will be considered by the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health next month.

It is hoped the legislation will be passed in early 2020.

Minister for Health Simon Harris received Cabinet approval last week for new legislation which will further restrict tobacco sales 15 years after the ban on smoking in the workplace was introduced.
