E-cigarettes - BBPA welcomes vote against ban in Wales

Commenting on last night’s vote in the Welsh Assembly against a ban on e-cigarettes in public places, BBPA Chief Executive Brigid Simmonds said:

“I am pleased the Welsh assembly has voted against this measure, and we had argued strongly against it in our submission.
