The Irish Cancer Society made a number of recommendations, such as a statutory ban on flavouring e-cigarettes and a statutory ban on all e-cigarette product advertising through all communication mediums, including outdoor areas, billboards, buses, at point-of-sale, and online. It commented on how important it is that heads 19 and 35 are included in the final Bill regarding the prohibition of the sale of e-cigarettes to children and the prohibition of the use of vending machine in the sale of tobacco products. Will the witnesses comment on the issue of advertising?
