A Government health agency has denied claims from e-cigarette company E-Lites that it has proposed a ban on smoking electronic cigarettes in public.
Public Health England said:
We have not called for a ban on e-cigarette use in public spaces. PHE is working with our partners to consider the options for supporting safe use of e-cigarettes to reduce harm and support smokers to quit, some of which were discussed by our Board in February.
