Swifter action needed on vapes

I welcomed the Chancellor’s announcement that he would be taxing vaping products, but I wonder why on earth this has to be left until 2026. It is disappointing that in the same week that Laura Young, also known as Less Waste Laura, was named as Scottish influencer of the year for her fantastic environmental campaigning, including on banning disposable vapes, this important tax measure has been so resoundingly kicked into the long grass.

I appreciate that the Minister responding to my question today did say she would raise this with the Treasury. However we get there, we need to keep up the pressure on the harms these disposable vapes cause, and ensure they are off our streets as soon as possible.
