The Welsh Lib Dems believe every decision taken by Government should be based on a body of sound evidence. Labour's proposed ban on e-cigs in enclosed public places in Wales just doesn't meet that mark.
Not only is there very little evidence to suggest that e-cigarettes are passively harmful, but there's a high chance this heavy-handed approach could be counter-productive. Many vapers use e-cigs as an aid to give up smoking, and in some places where a similar ban has been introduced smoking rates have increased again.
Banning things just for the sake of it isn’t a position any Government should take. That's why the Welsh Lib Dems are standing up to this illiberal move.
