Liberal senator Sarah Henderson has combined with Labor and Centre Alliance to shut down an attempt by two Coalition rebels to upturn the government’s prescription-only policy on e-cigarettes.

In a Senate inquiry report to be tabled on Friday, the cross-party majority rejected calls from Liberal Hollie Hughes and National Matt Canavan to allow vaping devices and fluid to be imported for personal use. The pair have been openly campaigning against the prescription-only model backed by the health minister, Greg Hunt, and Therapeutic Goods Administration.
