'Balancing act right' on e-cigarettes law, says Drakeford

People will be banned from using e-cigarettes in enclosed places like restaurants, pubs and at work in Wales, under a new public health law.

It has already divided health and medical groups, including some anti-smoking campaigners.

But ministers believe the controversial move - a UK first - is a "balance of risk" and will stop children smoking.

All tattoo and piercing parlours will also need licences under the Public Health Bill.

Health Minister Mark Drakeford said the bill got the balancing act between helping smokers quit and stopping young people from getting into smoking right.
