What analysis has the Welsh Government made of Public Health England’s assessment that e-cigarettes are at least 95 per cent less harmful than cigarettes?

Answered by Minister for Health and Social Services Answered on 20/03/2019

We continue to maintain a watching brief on e-cigarettes and will be reviewing the available evidence as the consensus statement, which I recently referred to in the Senedd, is developed. The consensus statement will consider the relative harm of e-cigarettes compared to conventional tobacco products and the role of e-cigarettes for smoking cessation.
