Campaigners and traders have reacted to the failed Public Health Bill, which included proposals to ban the use of e-cigarettes in some public places.
The British Vape Trade Association -which is made up of importers, distributors and vendors within vaping- has expressed their 'delight' at the u-turn.
We are delighted that a majority of Welsh Assembly members have chosen to vote against the Welsh Government’s public vaping ban.
This ban was not based on any credible evidence, and it was clear by the wide coalition of organisations opposing this ban, that it lacked any significant support within the public health community or the wider Welsh population.
Campaigners within the group 'Forest' which advised against plans to ban the use of e-cigarettes have also welcomed the news.
The proposals to severely restrict the use of e-cigarettes in public places were hopelessly misguided and irrational.
The proposed measures were based not on evidence of harm but on an irrational fear of nicotine.
