Tory MP Peter Gibson claimed children are being exploited 'as mules to fetch and carry the illegal products' and 'as agents by selling the vapes to their friends'
Labour Shadow Public Health Minister Preet Gill said: "It is deeply concerning that vapes are being used to exploit children. The Conservatives' failure to crack down on the marketing of vapes to children has allowed them to become the latest school fad fashion accessory, with kids becoming hooked on nicotine as a result.
“Labour will introduce tough new laws to stop gangs exploiting children, come down like a ton of bricks on the vaping industry, and ban the marketing and advertising of vapes to under-18s.”
