Vaping in taxis ban considered
at a public meeting next Monday, it would be following Bradford which has already banned them. Leeds is considering it, however Kirklees and Wakefield is yet to consider it. But there is some debate about e-cigarettes. Earlier this month Public Health England called for them to be prescribed on the NHS within the next few years because of how successful they have been in helping people to stop smoking.
Research suggests at least 20,000 people a year quit with the help of e-cigarettes and they are at least 95% less harmful than smoking. But they’re not popular everywhere, the Welsh Government tried to ban the use of e-cigarettes in some enclosed places, including schools and hospitals, fearing vaping would “renormalise smoking”, but the bid failed due to a political row.
