In an excellent new report published today, Chris Snowdon, Head of Lifestyle Economics at the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA), has called for the damaging regulations imposed on vapers and the vaping industry in the European Union's Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) to be scrapped post-Brexit.

In the IEA press release, Chris says:
"In any list of unnecessary and counter-productive EU regulation, the recent laws on e-cigarettes must be near the top. No one benefits from these arbitrary regulations and they have been widely criticised by politicians and health experts alike. If we don’t repeal low hanging fruit like this after Brexit, we won’t repeal anything."
We couldn't agree more with him and are pleased that the IEA has published this report. Lifting the restrictions in the TPD is one of the key objectives of the Freedom to Vape campaign. Chris is correct when he says that doing so would be an easy Brexit win. We hope the Government takes note.
