Consultation on Electronic Cigarettes and Strengthening Tobacco Control in Scotland, 10/10/14 - 02/01/14 [S]

These legislative proposals build on Scottish Government’s existing approach to tobacco control. The proposals on e-cigarettes seek to balance the potential benefits of e-cigarettes to current smokers while protecting non-smokers, particularly young people, from the promotion of smoking behaviours. They aim to reduce access and availability of these products to young people under the age of 18. The proposal relating to smoking in cars seeks to build on previous legislation by protecting young people under the age of 18 from exposure to second-hand smoke in enclosed spaces. Consultation to 2 January 2015.

For full details see the Scottish Government website.
