Evidence from Vince Jarvis – PHB 11 / Tystiolaeth gan Vince Jarvis – PHB 11



I moved seamlessly from smoking to a  P.V.(Personal Vapouriser) 3 years ago and have not looked back or smoked since! Let us not forget that the smoking ban was introduced to prevent  the harmful effects of tobacco smoke to the public.This is as true now as it was then. I do not accept the "We've moved on" argument.

Therefore I strongly object to to being treated as a smoker. To me,This proposed legislation is based on a personal dislike without any concrete evidence to back it up. Surely the top priority of the Health Minister  is  to save the Welsh Health and Ambulance service (Which is hard) rather than trample over our civil liberties (Which is easy)  Who's next  to face a ban? Junk Food because it normalises Obesity,or limited drinks at the bar in case it encourages Binge drinking !  We'll shortly have no lifestyle choices except the one this Welsh Government graciously allows us. Listen not only to the Pro ban lobby and the voices of the intolerant, also to the eminent anti ban groups I hope this  is read  without  Blinkers and not listened to with deaf ears
