Councillors in Cumberland are to question the government on the illegal sale of vapes

At a public meeting next week, the issue of illegal vaping sales will be raised in the UK county of Cumberland, where councilors will ask about the corresponding number of prosecutions and response strategies. The issue has raised concerns about minors buying vapes.


According to Newsandstar on January 10th, the UK county of Cumberland will propose the illegal sale of vapes at a public meeting next week.


Councillor Tim Pickstone (Lib Dem Longtown) will be asking questions at a Cumberland County Council meeting on 16 January. MP Pickstone will soon question MP BobKelly (Milom, Labour), who is head of the organization for the Cumberland Policy and Regulatory Service.


He will ask Congressman Kelly: “Can you tell members how many lawsuits were filed in 2023 regarding the illegal sale of vapes and what the agency has done about the illegal sale of vaping in 2024?”


Congressman Kelly gave an update on vapes at a meeting in July. He told MPS that business standards officers had found several people selling vape brands to minors at Workington. At the time, he noted that he was concerned that illegal sales might lead these teens to smoke in the future.


“We should be vigilant,” he added.


Starting at 1 p.m., the Tuesday council meeting will be held in the Carlisle Civic Center.
