To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, with reference to the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Vaping’s inquiry into the UK Tobacco Harm Reduction Opportunities Post-Brexit: Achieving a Smoke-Free 2030, what assessment he has made of the potential merits of in-packet targeted communications to smokers on (a) availability of reduced-risk alternative products and (b) the potential effects of other products on health.

No assessment has been made. Inserts in cigarette packets are banned under the Standardised Packaging of Tobacco Products Regulations 2015. The Government is currently conducting a post implementation review of the Regulations which will be published later this year.
