Defence: Operation Shader (20 Mai 2024)

Bob Blackman: Whether he has made an assessment of the adequacy of military resources allocated by the UK to Operation Shader to help deter Iranian attacks.

Defence: Operation Shader (20 Mai 2024)

Bob Blackman: I thank my hon. Friend for that answer. Clearly, the brave resistance fighters in Iran will be celebrating the demise of the Butcher of Tehran today. Iran controls Hamas, Hezbollah and other terrorist organisations. Given the attack by Iran on Israel, what further assessment has my hon. Friend made of the potential for Iran to launch another attack?

Defence: Topical Questions (20 Mai 2024)

Bob Blackman: I warmly welcome the Government’s commitment to spend 2.5% of GDP on defence spending, but after we have won the next general election, growth will come to the economy and there will be much more money to be spent on defence? How would my right hon. Friends spend that money in the defence of the realm?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: New Clause 9 - Prohibition of sponsorship: vaping substances containing nicotine (14 Mai 2024)

Bob Blackman: I thank the hon. Lady for tabling the new clause. We will come to further new clauses that deal with advertising for vaping products. We are clearly now in the position whereby if anyone suggested that football teams should have tobacco advertising on their shirts, they would be laughed out of court. That is equally true in all the other circumstances that the hon. Lady described. I have a...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: New Clause 9 - Prohibition of sponsorship: vaping substances containing nicotine (14 Mai 2024)

Bob Blackman: I have a lot of sympathy with what the hon. Lady asks for. I ask my right hon. Friend the Minister, in dealing with this new clause and the other new clauses about advertising, to go away and come up with a comprehensive series of amendments that will ban advertising for vaping products in their entirety—not just in sports stadiums and not just on sports shirts, but comprehensively, right...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: New Clause 2 - Tobacco products statutory scheme: consultation (14 Mai 2024)

Bob Blackman: If I may, my right hon. Friend must have smoked for only a brief period because she certainly does not look old. Most of what she said was about the end customer and the cost to the end customer. Every time the Government raise tobacco duty, that makes the price for the end customer more expensive. What we are talking about is a levy on the profits of the big tobacco companies, which they...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: New Clause 3 - Notification fees (14 Mai 2024)

Bob Blackman: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. It is my show this afternoon! New clause 3 looks at the notification fees collected by the authorities, so that fees can be used to cover the costs of enforcement, including product testing. It would enable the Secretary of State to change those fees by regulation, and to look at what big tobacco and the vaping industry are doing to...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: New Clause 3 - Notification fees (14 Mai 2024)

Bob Blackman: I beg to ask leave to withdraw the motion.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: New Clause 7 - Retail licence for sale of tobacco, vaping and nicotine products (14 Mai 2024)

Bob Blackman: There is a degree of repetition in this. New clauses 7 and 8 relate to where tobacco products are sold and the licensing of them. There is a genuine debate, in both the industry and the House, about whether we should have a licensing scheme for tobacco, vaping and other nicotine products. These two new clauses would allow the Secretary of State to introduce regulations both on a licensing...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Clause 79 - Commencement (14 Mai 2024)

Bob Blackman: One of the clear concerns expressed by retailers—not necessarily the owners of shops but the staff who work in them and sell the products—is that if they can turn round to customers and say, “Look, it’s the law. I’ve got to ask you for your age verification. It is not something I can choose not to do; I have to do it,” that would strengthen their position. It would prevent...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Clause 79 - Commencement (14 Mai 2024)

Bob Blackman: Given the Minister’s answer, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: New Clause 2 - Tobacco products statutory scheme: consultation (14 Mai 2024)

Bob Blackman: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. The clause stands in my name and the names of other hon. Members. Clearly, its concern is consultation on proposals for the regulation of profits from big tobacco —a recommendation of the all-party parliamentary group and of Javed Khan’s excellent report. The provision is designed to look at the profits of big tobacco, but big tobacco...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Clause 79 - Commencement (14 Mai 2024)

Bob Blackman: I beg to move amendment 24, in clause 79, page 42, line 16, leave out “and 8” and insert “, 8 and (age verification policy)”. This amendment to the commencement provisions would mean that NC6 (age verification policy in England and Wales) would come into force six months after Royal Assent.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Clause 79 - Commencement (14 Mai 2024)

Bob Blackman: I rise to support the amendment and new clause tabled in my name. I will save the Committee time and will not go through the amendment in detail, because obviously colleagues have it in front of them. The key point is that the new clause would introduce a requirement on tobacco, herbal smoking or vaping product businesses to operate an age verification policy, covering steps to be taken to...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Clause 79 - Commencement (14 Mai 2024)

Bob Blackman: I thank the hon. Lady for that intervention. I am always willing to praise people who do the right thing. Unfortunately the SNP Government do not always do the right thing, as many of us know. Extending the requirements for Scotland to the rest of the United Kingdom is supported by the vast majority of the general public and of retailers surveyed by ASH in 2024. To quote John McClurey, a...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Clause 62 - Contents and flavour of vaping products and nicotine products (14 Mai 2024)

Bob Blackman: I rise in support of clause 62, noting the two amendments proposed by a Member not on the Committee that would have removed the power of the Secretary of State to deal with flavours. I consider it vital that the Secretary of State can make regulations about flavours of vaping products and nicotine products. As has been said, this is a much-needed power to help curb youth vaping. The chief...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Clause 61 - Retail packaging of vaping products and nicotine products (14 Mai 2024)

Bob Blackman: I rise to speak to amendment 21, which I tabled with other hon. Members. It seeks to regulate vaping product standards and is vital to the Bill. The amendment allows for changes to other features of vaping or nicotine products, as set out in regulation 36 of the Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016, which at the moment do not distinguish between the differences among brands, such as...
