Responding to the news that Public Health England will be endorsing vaping products in its Stoptober campaign for the first time, Andrew Allison, Head of Campaigns at The Freedom Association, said:
"Whilst we do not think that smokers should be forced to quit, and should certainly not be treated like second class citizens, those who do wish to stop smoking are more likely to do so by vaping. It is encouraging that Public Health England has backed up its previous advice by formally endorsing e-cigarettes in its Stoptober campaign for the first time.
"This is not only good news for those who want to quit, it is also good news for the vaping industry and the thousands of jobs that depend on it."
