|Tobacco Vote A Victory For E-Cig Campaigners
As European Parliament votes not to treat them as medicines
Liberal Democrat MEPs today won a major victory for e-cigarette users when the European Parliament backed their amendment which will ensure e-cigs are available for sale on the same basis as tobacco cigarettes, and not regulated as medicines as the Labour MEP leading on the legislation wanted.
"I applaud the vigorous and effective people's campaign which has led to this victory. Now we must convince the 28 governments too."
