To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, with reference to the Answer of 3 August 2020 to Question 72841 on Tobacco: Marketing and the US Food and Drug Administration's Modified Risk Granted Order reference MR0000192, published on 11 March 2022, if he will (a) make it his policy to commission independent research into heated tobacco products as recommended in the Khan review: making smoking obsolete, published on 9 June 2022 and (b) introduce a new regulatory framework for those products.

The next Vaping in England report, commissioned by the former Public Health England and produced by Kings College London, includes a chapter on heated tobacco products. This will be published in summer 2020.

Plans for future research will be set out in the forthcoming white paper on health disparities and the Tobacco Control Plan, which will be published later this year. There are no current plans to introduce new regulatory framework for these products.
