'Shocked’ UK PM Rishi Sunak clamps down on free vapes for children
London, May 30 (PTI) "My daughters are 10 and 12, and I don’t want the way vapes are marketed, promoted and sold to be attractive to them," British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said on Tuesday as he launched a crackdown to protect children from "rogue companies and online crooks".
Announcing the new set of measures aimed at curbing under-age vaping, Sunak said expressed his shock at reports of illicit vapes containing lead getting into the hands of schoolchildren.
Taking to Twitter, the father of schoolgirls Anoushka and Krishna said: “My daughters are 10 and 12, and I don’t want the way vapes are marketed, promoted and sold to be attractive to them." “That’s why I am launching a new crackdown today to protect children and go after the rogue companies and online crooks who are putting vapes into their hands,” he said.
