MPs call for restrictions on disposable vapes to limit use by children

MPs have urged the government to introduce restrictions on the packaging and marketing of disposable vapes to tackle the “alarming trend” of children using these addictive products. The health and social care committee said there should be restrictions on how e-cigarettes are sold, in line with those applied to tobacco products. They said they were concerned about the disruption e-cigarettes were causing in schools and had heard from a headteacher who said that hydraulic oil and antifreeze had been found in a vape they confiscated.


12.90% of the adult population are current smokers. There are approximately 7.2 million current smokers in United Kingdom 14.60% of men are current smokers but only 11.20% of women.
