The Welsh Lib Dems believe every decision taken by Government should be based on a body of sound evidence. Welsh Labour's proposed ban on e-cigs in enclosed public places just doesn't meet that mark.
Not only is there very little evidence to suggest that e-cigarettes are passively harmful, but there's a high chance this heavy-handed approach could be counter-productive. Many vapers use e-cigs as an aid to give up smoking, and in some places where a similar ban has been introduced smoking rates have increased again.
Banning things just for the sake of it isn’t a position any Government should take. That's why the Welsh Lib Dems are standing up to this illiberal move, and why we want you on board by signing the petition below.
I'm against Welsh Labour Government plans to ban the use of e-cigarettes in enclosed public places, and will remain opposed until evidence shows clear health benefits for such a ban.
