New Clause 7 - Retail licence for sale of tobacco, vaping and nicotine products

Part of Tobacco and Vapes Bill – in a Public Bill Committee at 2:30 pm on 14 May 2024.

Alert me about debates like this

“(1) The Health Act 2006 is amended as follows.

(2) After section 13 (Power to amend age for sale of tobacco etc.) insert—

“13A Retail licence for sale of tobacco, vaping and nicotine products

The Secretary of State may by regulations introduce a scheme in England to require a person to obtain a licence before selling tobacco, e-cigarettes, novel nicotine products and related goods.””—

This new clause would enable the Secretary of State to introduce by regulation schemes to require the licensing of sale of tobacco, vaping or nicotine products.
