How many people have contacted their MEPs' ?
Just wondering how many people have contacted their MEPs' about the proposed e-cig regulation contained in the Tobacco Products Directive ?

So far, I have emailed all of mine. When I have received all the responses back, I will send a follow up written letter (further to your email dated xx/xx/xxx etc).

When I have received letters back, I will arrange to see some of them in person at their local surgurys.

So far, out of 5 emailed, I have received 2 replies.

One from a Conservative, and one from a Lib-Dem - The good news is that both of them say that they are firmly opposed to the proposed electronic cigarette regulation and will demand changes when the legislation reached the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety Committee (ENVI) committee.

What replies have you had ?

Nobody has voted "not yet", yet...

I emailed Dr. Charles Tannock, my MEP for London, earlier. To be honest it was only yesterday that I had read the actual document- I had hoped that the figures we got at Xmas were wrong. But they aren't.

I still reckon there are a few legal avenues to challenge the restrictions, though. The silence from ECITA is palpable, and I imagine (hope) that at this, our greatest hour of need, they are indeed doing what we need.
