Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 1 May 2024)

...of Physicians. To give a bit of background, the RCP has produced reports over the past 60 years on a whole variety of facets of tobacco control. Most recently, we published a report on e-cigarettes and an evidence review that looked at the trends of e-cigarette use, safety, efficacy and regulations. As my day job, I am a consultant in intensive care and respiratory medicine in Leicester....

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 1 May 2024)

Professor Hawthorne: Smoking-related illnesses cost the NHS about £2.5 billion a year. Everybody knows that lung cancer goes with smoking, but what I am really seeing is awful chronic obstructive airways disease. I work in a deprived area. Many of my patients have smoked ever since they were teenagers and find it very difficult to stop. Every winter, they come to see me repeatedly with...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 1 May 2024)

Professor Sir Stephen Powis: Yes, I do. As you have heard from the chief medical officers, vaping has a role in tobacco cessation and supporting those who want to quit smoking. That is the guidance from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, which we follow and support in the NHS. Evidence is increasing that starting vaping and the use of nicotine-based alternatives to...

Professor Sir Chris Whitty: I think I speak on behalf of all the chief medical officers when I say we enormously welcome the Bill, which I think the overwhelming majority of doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers fully support. It is an extraordinarily important public health measure. There are three points we thought it would be useful to make, the first of which is about the harms of...

Prime Minister: Engagements ( 1 May 2024)

Kirsten Oswald: ...that teenagers who vape could be at risk of exposure to toxic metals, potentially harming brain or organ development. I agree with the Prime Minister in his wish to reduce the harms caused by smoking and vaping through the Tobacco and Vapes Bill. Does he agree that permitting football strips to be sponsored by vaping companies sends entirely the wrong message to young people, and that it...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Examination of Witness (30 Apr 2024)

Laura Young: Absolutely. The first thing to remember is that vaping is not good for you. It is slightly better than smoking, but let us definitely not push the message that it is good for you. On disposables, that is something I got to see first hand just last week. Only one place in Scotland has the capacity to recycle disposable vapes or any vapes at all. From watching that process, it...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Examination of Witness (30 Apr 2024)

Preet Kaur Gill: Q My first question to you is, what is the impact of tobacco smoking on public health? Secondly, do you think the Bill’s measures to prevent vaping products from being sold to children will be successful? That is essentially clauses 61 and 62.

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Examination of Witnesses (30 Apr 2024)

Greg Fell: I, too, thank the Committee. I am Greg Fell, director of public health in Sheffield and president of the UK Association of Directors of Public Health, thus representing DPH. Similarly, all DPH strongly support the Bill—I have yet to find a public health professional who does not, as I do not think that one exists, particularly on the smoking elements. No other product is as...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Examination of witness (30 Apr 2024)

Paul Farmer: Age UK fully supports the proposed legislation, and we have been working alongside the Richmond Group of Charities to highlight the significant health benefits of phasing out smoking, which will help individuals and have a wider impact on society. It will have particular benefits for the NHS, which as we know faces significant challenges at the moment. Our job at Age UK is to...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Examination of Witnesses (30 Apr 2024)

Preet Kaur Gill: Q Thank you, Chair, and I thank the witnesses for giving evidence today. First, is under-age smoking or vaping the bigger issue in schools today, and what is the impact on education, behaviour and so on? Secondly, will the measures in the Bill to restrict sales of vaping products to children under 18 work, in your opinion?

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Examination of Witnesses (30 Apr 2024)

Preet Kaur Gill: Q You will know that the Government have a clear target to narrow the gap in healthy life expectancy between the highest and lowest areas in the next five years. Do you think that smoking rates are particularly high in certain parts of the country, and are the health benefits following the ban therefore likely to be more prevalent in some places than in others? That is my first question....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Loneliness Strategy (29 Apr 2024)

Sinéad McLaughlin: Thank you to Robbie Butler and others on the all-party group for tabling the motion. Loneliness is a huge problem in communities across Northern Ireland. Far too often, it gets swept under the carpet. It is right that we give time in the Assembly to discuss that hidden crisis. Of course, we can all expect to be lonely at some point in our lives, but persistent and chronic loneliness and,...
