The EU is consulting on its plans to ‘beat cancer’. Consultation information here. I made two responses:
- Short freeform Feedback on Roadmap from Clive Bates (United Kingdom) and as a formatted PDF (closing date: 3 March 2020)
- Pro-forma feedback – Consultation response – Clive Bates (closing date: 7 May 2020)
The art of regulation in the tobacco field is now the art of recognising, understanding and avoiding the harmful unintended consequences that would arise from excessive regulation of safer alternatives to cigarettes – and these are pervasive.  This is not an area in which the EU has excelled in the past, but it should become a central feature of policymaking from now on, including in Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan.
