On Tuesday 19 March 2024, the Regulatory Policy Commitee submitted a Impact Assessment (IA) for the Tobacco and Vapes Bill. The NNA has written to the RPC to give consumer group comments on the IA.

The NNA believes that the IA does not adequately reflect the balance of benefits and detriments and will have the effect of supporting legislation for which there is an extremely weak rationale and major scope for unintended consequences. 

The full Impact Assessment can be found online here.
