On 12 October, the government  launched a consultation seeking views on plans to reduce the appeal of youth vaping, affordability and availability of vapes to children.

The consultation is open to anyone, of any age, in the UK and includes proposals to restrict child-friendly flavours and brightly coloured packaging.

Views on these proposals are now being sought from everyone, including the public, the retail sector, clinicians and medical professionals, public health stakeholders, academic experts, employers and trade unions.

The consultation closes on 6 December.
