Question ref. S6W-05654
Asked by: Alexander Stewart, Mid Scotland and Fife, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
Date lodged: 11 January 2022


To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S6W-00396 by Maree Todd on 16 June 2021, for what reasons it has not met its previous commitment to launch the Nicotine Vapour Products (NVPs) public consultation in Autumn 2021.

Current status: Answered by Maree Todd on 19 January 2022


The Scottish Government has taken the opportunity to liaise with a short-life working group and update the consultation in line with the most recent emerging evidence. We have also taken on board requests not to launch the consultation in the run-up to Christmas which is the busiest trading period and may not allow retailers the full opportunity to share their views.

The document is now in its final stages of review and will be published in the coming weeks.
