Under the government's "swap to stop" scheme in England, traditional smokers can get free vaping "starter packs" to help them quit tobacco.

John Dunne, its director general, added it would also make vapes a "less accessible" alternative for people in poorer areas with the highest smoking rates.

It comes after plans were announced last month to deliver a UK-wide ban on disposable vapes, alongside restrictions on flavours and how they can be packaged.

Next week's Budget will see the government unveil its tax and spending plans for the year ahead amid the backdrop of sluggish economic growth.

It noted that at the Autumn Statement, the chancellor was "only just" on course to meet the government's rule that official forecasts should show debt falling as a share of national income in five years' time.
