A Consultation on Electronic Cigarettes and Strengthening Tobacco Control in Scotland

A Consultation on Electronic Cigarettes and Strengthening Tobacco Control in Scotland

Friday, October 10, 2014

ISBN: 9781784128340

The primary aim of this consultation is to invite views on a range of potential measures for the sale and use of electronic cigarettes and strengthening tobacco control in Scotland.

Executive Summary

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.
