Health Minister Greg Hunt has delayed plans to ban the importation of liquid nicotine. The ban was scheduled to begin on July 1 but will now be delayed for six months while the regulator conducts a formal review. It comes after 28 Coalition MPs started a push against the restrictions. Australian Tobacco Harm Reduction Association Director Dr Colin Mendelsohn told Ben Fordham it is a welcome delay. “I think the outrage from the community was just extraordinary."
