Question ref. S6W-05653
Asked by: Alexander Stewart, Mid Scotland and Fife, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
Date lodged: 11 January 2022

Question

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S6W-00396 by Maree Todd on 16 June 2021, when the Nicotine Vapour Products (NVPs) public consultation will be launched.

Current status: Answered by Maree Todd on 19 January 2022


Answer

We plan to launch the consultation into proposed further restrictions on the advertising and promotion of Nicotine Vapour Products in the coming weeks.

Following requests not to consult during the Christmas and New Year period – one of the busiest for the retail sector – the Scottish Government has taken the opportunity to review and update the document to take into account, the most recent emerging evidence. This review is now in its final stages.
