Sadly our event event- E-cigarettes and Harm Reduction and Why Getting the Regulation Right is Vital, due to take place in the House of Commons at 14:00 on the 2nd of September, has been postponed to a later date.
We had put a huge amount of effort into this event and had secured, what we thought was, a good line-up of speakers.
We have not taken the decision lightly and are acutely aware of the inconvenience this may cause some people, however, it had always been our intention that this event would not be ‘just another e-cigarette event’, but instead one that genuinely moved the debate forward. For that we had hoped to have a significant number of politicians attending.
Due to global events and the possibility of major debates regarding said events taking place when parliament returns in September, it has just not been possible for many politicians to be able to commit to attending this event and therefore we took the decision to hold our event at a later date.
We will let you know when a new event is planned, but until that moment I would like to ask you all to put your efforts into supporting these very important petitions:
Welsh Petition to prevent the ban of vaping in public places (closing date 12/09/2014): https://www.assemblywales.org/epetition-list-of-signatories.htm?pet_id=1023
EFVI: http://www.efvi.eu where if we can get 1 million signatures across Europe, then the EU Parliament have to take another look at the Tobacco products Directive, which at the moment is set to radically alter the e cig landscape for the worse.
And finally, if you can – go along to the e cig summit – http://www.e-cigarette-summit.com or more importantly – GET YOUR MP to attend it – as we need to get the TPD changed, and for that to happen, we have to take action. We went last year, and it really was a very worthwhile event.
