House Of Lords Vote Would Scupper TPD

Paul Barnes – New Nicotine Alliance

In the House of Lords Lord Callanan has put down a motion (link to text of press release) which if passed would stop implementation of the TPD in the UK. This is a critical development.

Why this is different….

House of Lords vote could defeat UK TPD

Junglist – Planet of the Vapes

Following the savaging of the TPD last week, Lord Callanan has put down a motion which if passed will stop implementation of the TPD in the UK. This is a critical development that all vapers need to be aware of. The more pressure that we can apply now the greater the likelihood of a positive response and the greater chance we have of getting even more people out of the clutches of smoking….

‘Fatal Motion’ tabled in the House of Lords

Is this the end of TPD Article 20 for the UK?ECITA

In an astonishing eleventh hour move, Lord Callanan – who many will remember as former MEP Martin Callanan, one of a small group who fought so valiantly to prevent Article 20 from being dragged up from the bowels of hell and put into law – has tabled a ‘fatal motion’ to kill off the TPD, and prevent its being implemented into UK law…

We support the Parliamentary moves

To block crazy e-cigarette regulations – Abzed.com

This petition is requesting the House of Lords to back Lord Callanan’s motion to stop harsh regulations on e-cigarettes which would force vapers back to smoking. We urge our House of Commons to debate the implications for public health of the Tobacco Products Directive on e-cigarettes. And we plead with the Prime Minister to use his influence in Brussels to get a British opt-out from Article 20 before the EU referendum so this issue does not affect that vote.

I as all vapers hope and pray that stature and integrity prevail and the TPD is crushed, but also fear that just more bribery and payoffs from Pharma will sway the vote and the TPD will stand as the law.

    • “also fear that just more bribery and payoffs from Pharma will sway the vote and the TPD will stand as the law.”

      However, vapers and pro-vape politicians did defeat medicalisation (which was far worse than the TPD), and we did defeat the Welsh ban. We only have a chance, but still now is the time to go all out in support of a brave move to try and overturn the TPD.
