Northwest England's Call for Stronger Regulations on E-Cigarettes
The Northamptonshire County Council passed a motion urging the government to strengthen regulations on e-cigarette control.

The council of Northamptonshire County in northwest England has passed a motion calling on the government to strengthen regulations on e-cigarettes. Over the past six months, the county's trading standards team has seized 5,000 illegal e-cigarettes and is developing a plan to crack down on addictive e-cigarettes popular among children. Recent government statistics reveal that approximately 10% of children aged 11 to 15 in the country use e-cigarettes.

 

The committee overwhelmingly passed a motion, calling on the committee to write to the Minister of Health and Social Care, urging for "stricter restrictions on the marketing and supply of e-cigarette products to underage children".

 

According to Member of Parliament Catherine Russell, she expressed her satisfaction with the government's serious approach to the issue of youth vaping.
