Vaping ban delayed after community outrage
Health Minister Greg Hunt has delayed plans to ban the importation of liquid nicotine.
The ban was scheduled to begin on July 1 but will now be delayed for six months while the regulator conducts a formal review.
It comes after 28 Coalition MPs started a push against the restrictions.
Australian Tobacco Harm Reduction Association Director Dr Colin Mendelsohn told Ben Fordham it is a welcome delay.
“I think the outrage from the community was just extraordinary.
“It makes no sense to make a far safer product hard to get.”
