Backbench Business: Inequalities in Dementia Services — [Christina Rees in the Chair] (16 May 2024)

Debbie Abrahams: ...crux of the issues we are facing. First of all the target is not ambitious enough, but as he rightly says there are these inequalities. I prefer calling a spade a spade, so these are inequalities and we need to call them what they are. Although the national picture is poor, if we dig further into the data we can see that there is a huge regional inequality in dementia diagnosis rates. In...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Alcoholic Drinks and Smoking: Health Services (16 May 2024)

Andrew Bridgen: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if she will make an estimate of the cost to the public purse of treating (a) smoking related illnesses and (b) alcohol related illnesses in the last 12 months.

5. Member Debate under Standing Order 11.21(iv): Control of tobacco and nicotine products (15 May 2024)

Gareth Davies: Thanks, Mabon. We've got to keep remembering that smoking is legal. It's not illegal, and like I said in my remarks, it's an informed choice, because if you're over a certain age, you've learned from quite a young age in school that smoking's pretty bad for your health. Everybody accepts that. I get that. I worked in the NHS for 11 years. I fully understand the health implications of smoking....

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Smoking (15 May 2024)

Alexander Stafford: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if she will make an estimate of the number of hospital admissions for issues related to cigar smoking in the last (a) 12 months, (b) five years and (c) 20 years.

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: New Clause 14 - Application of the Part I of the Health Act 2006 to vaping (14 May 2024)

Trudy Harrison: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. I am channelling my hon. Friend the Member for Sleaford and North Hykeham and her passionate work as a consultant paediatrician or, as she would say, the children’s doctor in the House. I regard her experience highly. As technology evolves, so do our habits. This new clause seeks parity for smoking and vaping, so that the same rules that...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: New Clause 11 - Testing of samples of nicotine-containing e-cigarette products (14 May 2024)

Preet Kaur Gill: I rise to speak to new clauses 11 and 13 on the testing of nicotine-containing vape products. Earlier we debated clause 73, which will allow Ministers to create new exceptions to publication as part of the notification scheme. We of course welcome those new powers, which represent a concession on the Minister’s part. However, the current notification process, which is what products must go...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: New Clause 9 - Prohibition of sponsorship: vaping substances containing nicotine (14 May 2024)

Kirsten Oswald: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. As Members can see, new clause 9 seeks to stamp out the advertising of vape products in sports. We can all—or perhaps just those who spend more time than we should watching football—think back to days in the past when our favourite football teams ran about the park with cigarettes advertised on their shirts. We would find that quite...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: New Clause 7 - Retail licence for sale of tobacco, vaping and nicotine products (14 May 2024)

Andrea Leadsom: I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Harrow East, and to the hon. Member for York Central, who proposed a similar licensing scheme; other amendments that have not been debated also proposed the creation of a licensing scheme. I was frank this morning, and I will be again: the proposal sounds like a licence for those with licences to squeeze out those who cannot get licences and...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: New Clause 2 - Tobacco products statutory scheme: consultation (14 May 2024)

“(1) The Secretary of State must consult and report on the desirability of making a scheme with one or more of the following purposes— (a) regulating, for the purposes of improving public health, the prices which may be charged by any manufacturer or importer of tobacco products for the supply of any tobacco products; (b) limiting the profits which may accrue to any manufacturer or...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Clause 79 - Commencement (14 May 2024)

New clause 6—Age verification policy— “(1) A person commits an offence if the person— (a) carries on a tobacco, herbal smoking product or vaping product business, and (b) fails to operate an age verification policy in respect of premises at which the person carries on the tobacco, herbal smoking product or vaping product business. (2) Subsection (1) does not apply to premises (“the...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Clause 62 - Contents and flavour of vaping products and nicotine products (14 May 2024)

Andrea Leadsom: This clause provides the Department of Health and Social Care Secretary of State with a power to regulate the contents and flavour of vaping products and nicotine products. Vaping is never recommended for children and, as we have just discussed, risks addiction and long-term health impacts. We know that children are attracted to the fruit and sweet flavours of vapes, both in their taste and...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Clause 61 - Retail packaging of vaping products and nicotine products (14 May 2024)

Preet Kaur Gill: New clause 10 would provide powers to the Secretary of State to amend regulations 36 and 38 of the Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016. As has been remarked several times in our debates, one of the biggest risks to the success of this legislation in achieving a smoke-free future and tackling youth vaping is that, if the Bill is not tightly worded, vexatious tobacco companies could...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Clause 58 - Tobacco retail packaging (14 May 2024)

Andrea Leadsom: I thank hon. Members for this debate and am grateful for the proposed amendments. I am sympathetic to the aims of the amendments, particularly those on pack inserts. They would provide an opportunity to introduce positive messages and provide more advice and support directly to smokers to help them to quit. The international evidence base shows that pack inserts can be effective in helping...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Clause 59 - Flavour of tobacco products (14 May 2024)

Andrea Leadsom: As per the previous clause, clause 59 replaces an existing power in the 2014 Act to make regulations about the flavour of tobacco products. Flavours, particularly menthol, have been shown to make it easier for young people to start smoking and therefore more likely to become addicted. That is because menthol flavouring makes the smoke less harsh and therefore easier to inhale. The flavour...

Smartphones and Social Media: Children — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (14 May 2024)

Neil O'Brien: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Penistone and Stocksbridge (Miriam Cates) for making one of the most superb speeches that I have heard in my time in this House. In the 1940s, advertising men told us that more doctors smoked Camel cigarettes than any other type of cigarette, and as the evidence about smoking piled up they started to say that things were complicated and that it was not...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Clause 39 - Repeal of offence of purchasing tobacco products by under 18s (14 May 2024)

Preet Kaur Gill: I turn to part 2 of the Bill and some of the clauses that apply specifically to Scotland. As the Minister mentioned, Scotland has a proud history of leading on many tobacco control methods, including beating the rest of the UK in introducing regulations to prohibit smoking in enclosed public spaces in 2005. That was the crowning achievement of a proud public health legacy left by the last...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Clause 34 - Interpretation of Part 1 (14 May 2024)

Preet Kaur Gill: This is, of course, an extremely important part of the Bill, as it defines many of the terms used in it. We know how adept the industry has become at worming its way around the spirit of regulations that Parliament has debated and agreed in the past. The ban on menthol cigarettes is one example. The clause sets out a series of definitions of what is covered by various terms that we have been...

Global Intergenerational Week 2024 — [Clive Efford in the Chair] ( 9 May 2024)

Stuart Andrew: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship this afternoon, Mr Efford. I start by thanking the hon. Member for Motherwell and Wishaw (Marion Fellows) for securing this debate to mark Global Intergenerational Week, and all those who have contributed to the debate. I put on record my thanks to all the organisations in this country and around the world that have made it a really...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Clause 11 - Displays of vaping and nicotine products ( 9 May 2024)

Rachael Maskell: If I might be so bold, I think the Minister is making life slightly complicated for herself. We know the impact that taking smoking products out of the line of sight of people who go into shops or supermarkets has had. Putting them in closed cabinets has very much had the effect that we would want. People do not see the products, but they have to request them; they are not on display for...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Clause 12 - Restricted premises orders ( 9 May 2024)

Andrea Leadsom: This group of clauses relates to restricted premises orders, or RPOs. These are existing measures that local authority trading standards in England and Wales, and district councils in Northern Ireland, can deploy when a retailer is found to persistently breach tobacco and vape age of sale restrictions. Clauses 12 to 14 are based on and replace existing legislation in England and Wales. Clause...
