Question No. 2531
To ask the Minister for Health whether the Ministry will consider capturing information pertaining to the prevalence of vaping as well as other forms of e-cigarettes in future rounds of the National Population Health Survey.

The Ministry of Health is reviewing various methods to better estimate the vaping prevalence.
