E-cigarettes Will Not be in The New Welsh Health Bill


Earlier this year, the Welsh health bill that included regulations on e-cigarettes and tattoo parlours, fell at the last hurdle and was defeated by just one vote. 

Had it passed, it would have placed a ban on vaping in many public and enclosed public places, such as public transport, places of work and restaurants. The Bill fell at the last minute due to Plaid Cymru not supporting it after jibes were made by a Labour AM. 

Now, post elections, a new health bill will be introduced, but the First Minister Carwyn Jones has said plans to ban e-cigarettes in some public places will be dropped from Wales’ public health bill. 

Jones told BBC Radio Wales’ Sunday Supplement that the Public Health (Wales) Bill would be tabled again without the e-cigarettes ban.
“There is no point trying to bang our heads against a brick wall when it comes to e-cigs,” he told the programme.

“The Public Health Bill will be brought back to the assembly but clearly there is no point including the provisions on e-cigs when we know they are not going to get through.” 

Now that Labour are the minority government in Wales, they will have to forge much better relationships with other parties in order to get their legislation through, and it is great news for vapers that they have dropped the proposed ban on vaping.
