    The EU’s stance on vaping will only get worse for vapers. I don’t expect any change there, except excise duties, which I assume won’t affect us after we leave. Following the referendum, I thought the UK could scrap the parts of the EU TPD relating to vaping. For example, the 10ml size limit and 20mg/ml strength limit. I have a horrible feeling that, under May’s proposals for a “common rule book”, this will no longer be possible. Correct me if I’m wrong, but we will be in the situation that a UK company, who does no export business, will not be permitted to sell 36mg/ml eliquid in 20ml bottles to a UK customer. This shouldn’t necessarily be inevitable, as the sale of snus is permitted within Sweden. My second question is, will a UK company be permitted to export the above liquid to a non EU country?
    I’ve been searching for the answers to these questions without success. I suspect Boris’ claims that we will be a vassal state may be correct, but neither he nor his fellow Leave advocates will take the trouble to explain the details.
    Clive, you know how the EU works. Are you able to settle this?

    Hope the European Parliament and (given Brexit) the UK government listened and understood this time! And that they will make sensible decisions, without being swayed by the potential loss of tax income from tobacco products!

    A very good slideshow and informative for the uninformed. The TPD law was allegedly brought in for safety reasons but they are there for tax reasons to get the money back from the lost revenue from people switching from cigarettes to vaping
