To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, with reference to the recommendations of the independent review by Dr Javed Khan OBE on preventing youth access to vaping products, if his Department will take steps to ensure that (a) cartoon imagery, (b) references to youth culture and (c) flavour names that appeal to minors do not appear on the packaging or within the flavour names and descriptors of disposable vapes.
This answer is the replacement for a previous holding answer.

The Department will consider the recommendations set out in the Review. The Government's regulatory framework aims to maximise the opportunities for smokers to use vaping as a tool to quit, while preventing non-smokers and young people from using these products.
