    The government is planning to introduce new tax on vape liquids, The Sunday Mirror has reported.

    The proposed tax, set to introduced in the budget in March, will raise the prices by a least a quarter, the report added.

    The paper said the ministers “keen to push ahead with the tax” to prevent children buying vapes.

    The government has recently consulted on plans to reduce the appeal and availability of vapes to children, proposing restrictions on the sale of disposable vapes, “child-friendly” vape flavours and packaging and the display in retail outlets.

    The consultation also included plans to introduce a new law to stop children who turn 14 this year and younger from ever legally being sold cigarettes in England.

    The government has said it wants to encourage people who smoke cigarettes to switch to vaping, whilst discouraging non-smokers – particularly children – from starting vaping.
