The Government is committed to bringing forward legislative proposals to tackle youth vaping as part of the Tobacco and Vapes Bill which was announced in the King’s Speech on 7 November.

The Bill will restrict the sale and marketing of vapes to children, including restricting vape flavours, packaging, product presentation and display. Details of the full range of proposals under consideration are set out in the Government consultation “Creating a smokefree generation and tackling youth vaping” which closes on 6 December 2023.
