Sir: Well done The Grocer. You and the New Scientist appear to the only UK news outlets to pick upon this story (‘Scientists say tougher rules on e-cigarettes could put off quitters,’ 1 February).

The rest of the UK media are talking as if there may be some sort of debate, completely unaware that an EU committee misrepresenting scientific evidence has decided the regulations regarding e-cigs. As it stands, the regulations are due to be rubber stamped in March. No further debate is planned.
