What Measures Have the Government Announced?
We are pleased to support the measures announced by the Government aimed at tackling illicit vapes and underage sales.
- A new ‘illicit vapes enforcement squad’ – backed by £3 million of government funding – to be formed to enforce rules on vaping and tackle illegal sales of vapes to under-18s.
- Call for Evidence also launched to identify opportunities to stop children vaping.
- Around 1 million smokers will be encouraged to swap cigarettes for vapes under the world’s first national “swap to stop” scheme announced by the government.
- Pregnant women will also be offered financial incentives to help them quit as part of a sweeping package of measures to cut smoking rates in England, improve the nation’s health and help cut NHS waiting lists.
We are the approved insurance broker to the Independent British Vape Trade Association (IBVTA), we applaud their efforts in lobbying Government for enforcement to tackle the illicit trade and underage sales. This tackles the unscrupulous businesses trading illegally at no cost to the reputable businesses who do the right thing.
The government is investing in providing vapes to smokers and shows how quickly the vaping industry has established quality products required by smoking cessation services and in aiding the government in achieving their smoke free goals.
