Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health
General Scheme of the Public Health (Tobacco and Nicotine Inhaling Products) Bill 2019: Department of Health
The licensing issue is important in respect of controls. The present system was easy on multiples in regard to single applications. This Bill will ensure that is tightened up and will provide for fines and penalties.
Head 18 is a little confusing. It prohibits the sale of tobacco products or nicotine inhaling products by persons under the age of 18 except for close relatives of the licensee. Can Ms Gordon explain the rationale there?
