Government Ignores Vaping Industry

The UK Vaping Industry Association criticizes the government for excluding experts from the Tobacco and Vape Bill Committee, calling it undemocratic. They express concerns about the potential rise of illicit vape products and propose a licensing scheme. The association supports the Bill's aims but stresses the need for industry consultation. UKVIA has submitted amendments to address these issues. They have reached out to government officials to challenge the selection process for the committee. The exclusion of industry voices risks inadequate scrutiny of the Bill.
