Darren continues E-cigarettes Inquiry

The Science and Technology Committee is examining the impact of electronic cigarettes on human health (including their effectiveness as a stop-smoking tool), the suitability of regulations guiding their use, and the financial implications of a growing market on both business and the NHS.

Today, Darren asked witnesses about communicating messages about e-cigarettes to the public, and the medical licensing of e-cigarettes.

The witnesses Darren questioned were Rob Morrison, Senior Regulatory Policy Executive, Advertising Standards Authority, Professor John Newton, Director of Health Improvement, Public Health England, Professor Gillian Leng, Deputy Chief Executive, National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, and Dr Ian Hudson, Chief Executive, Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency.
