Oral Tobacco: Health Hazards

Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN HL4642, tabled on 2 December 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Kamall on 15 November (HL3287), why they have referred to the Food and Drug Administration's 2016 assessment of the health risks associated with using snus, rather than the 2019 assessment.

In the Written Answer of 15 November 2021, we incorrectly provided the 2016 assessment of the health risks associated with the use of snus. We have arranged for the record to be corrected. A copy of Scientific Review of Modified Risk Tobacco Product Application (MRTPA) Under Section 911 (d) of the FD&C Act – Technical Project Lead published in 2019 is attached.
