The two-year campaign to which the Member refers began in February 2012 and will end in March 2014. A three-strand evaluation programme is in place. The first report will be available in November of this year. The full findings will be available in the summer of 2014.
Dechreuodd yr ymgyrch dwy flynedd y mae’r Aelod yn cyfeirio ati ym mis Chwefror 2012 a daw i ben ym mis Mawrth 2014. Mae rhaglen werthuso ac iddi dair elfen ar waith. Bydd yr adroddiad cyntaf ar gael ym mis Tachwedd eleni. Bydd y canfyddiadau llawn ar gael yn haf 2014.

Lindsay WhittleBywgraffiadBiography
Minister, thank you for your answer. This campaign has been going on for some time now and all the evidence from surveys clearly indicate that the majority of the people of Wales are in favour of a ban on smoking in cars. If I had hairs in the back of my head, I would pull them out; why are we waiting so long?
Weinidog, diolch ichi am eich ateb. Mae’r ymgyrch hon wedi bod yn mynd rhagddi ers peth amser erbyn hyn ac mae’r holl dystiolaeth o arolygon yn dangos yn glir bod y rhan fwyaf o bobl Cymru o blaid gwaharddiad ar ysmygu mewn ceir. Pe bai gennyf wallt, byddwn yn ei dynnu; pam rydym yn aros cyhyd?
13:31
Mark DrakefordBywgraffiadBiography
The Member is probably right that public opinion has already moved strongly on this issue. However, just this morning, in front of the Children and Young People Committee, I was being asked questions about the extent to which the Government relies on evidence and evaluation for the programmes that we implement, and we have said from the beginning that this is a two-year campaign and we are not even at the end of it, let alone having evaluated it. While I understand the impatience to get on and do something that many of us in the Chamber think would be valuable, we have to allow the campaign to run its course and we have to be prepared to rely on actual evidence rather than our own instinctive beliefs about what that evidence may show.
Mae’n eithaf posibl bod yr Aelod yn iawn bod barn y cyhoedd eisoes wedi newid cryn dipyn ar y mater hwn. Fodd bynnag, y bore yma, gerbron y Pwyllgor Plant a Phobl Ifanc, roeddwn yn cael fy holi ynghylch y graddau y mae’r Llywodraeth yn dibynnu ar dystiolaeth a gwerthusiadau ar gyfer y rhaglenni a weithredwn, ac rydym wedi dweud o’r dechrau mai ymgyrch dwy flynedd ydyw, ac nid yw wedi dod i ben eto, heb sôn am ei gwerthuso. Er fy mod yn deall yr awydd i fwrw ymlaen â hyn a gwneud rhywbeth y mae llawer ohonom yn y Siambr yn credu y byddai’n werthfawr, rhaid inni adael i’r ymgyrch ddod i ben a rhaid inni fod yn barod i ddibynnu ar dystiolaeth wirioneddol yn hytrach na’n credoau greddfol ein hunain am yr hyn y gall y dystiolaeth ei ddangos.

Will the Minister join me in expressing regret at the recent failure of the European Parliament to pass proposed regulations on e-cigarettes?
A wnaiff y Gweinidog ymuno â mi i fynegi gofid am fethiant diweddar Senedd Ewrop i basio rheoliadau arfaethedig ynglŷn ag e-sigaréts?
13:32
Mark DrakefordBywgraffiadBiography
I certainly will join the Member in doing that. Other Members will be aware that, at present, e-cigarettes are not regulated in any way. They are not regulated for quality or safety, and you can buy one at any age. There is no age restriction on buying an electronic cigarette. There was an attempt in front of the European Parliament last week to introduce regulation of that sort and, in many ways, it has demonstrated the fault line that lies at the heart of Welsh politics: two Welsh Members of the European Parliament, from Plaid Cymru and Labour, voted in favour of regulation; two MEPs from the Conservative Party and the UK Independence Party voted against regulation in this area. I, myself, am with the Department of Health on this. Together, Ministers for health across the UK have agreed that the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency will introduce regulation of e-cigarettes as a medicine from 2016.
Byddaf yn sicr yn ymuno â’r Aelod i wneud hynny. Bydd Aelodau eraill yn ymwybodol nad yw e-sigaréts yn cael eu rheoleiddio mewn unrhyw ffordd ar hyn o bryd. Nid ydynt yn cael eu rheoleiddio o ran ansawdd na diogelwch, a gallwch brynu un ar unrhyw oedran. Nid oes cyfyngiad oedran ar brynu sigarét electronig. Bu ymgais gerbon Senedd Ewrop yr wythnos diwethaf i gyflwyno rheoliadau o’r fath ac, mewn sawl ffordd, mae wedi dangos y rhaniadau sydd wrth wraidd gwleidyddiaeth Cymru: pleidleisiod dau Aelod o Senedd Ewrop o Gymru, o Blaid Cymru a Llafur, o blaid rheoleiddio; pleidleisiodd dau ASE o’r Blaid Geidwadol a Phlaid Annibyniaeth y Deyrnas Unedig yn erbyn rheoleiddio yn y maes hwn. Rwyf innau’n cyd-fynd â’r Adran Iechyd yn hyn o beth. Gyda’i gilydd, mae’r Gweinidogion iechyd ym mhob rhan o’r DU wedi cytuno y bydd yr Asiantaeth Rheoleiddio Meddyginiaethau a Chynhyrchion Gofal Iechyd yn cyflwyno rheoliadau ynglŷn ag e-sigaréts fel meddyginiaeth o 2016.

The Minister will well know that smoking remains one of the leading preventable causes of death and ill-health in Wales. We all know that smoking can lead to all sorts of health problems, with around 20% of NHS admissions being related exclusively to smoking. This costs your budget at least £1 million per day. Would it not be wise now to take evidence and to look to take forward legislation at the earliest possible opportunity?
Bydd y Gweinidog yn gwybod yn iawn bod ysmygu yn dal i fod yn un o brif achosion marwolaethau a salwch yng Nghymru y gellir eu hosgoi. Gwyddom oll y gall ysmygu arwain at bob math o broblemau iechyd, gyda thua 20% o dderbyniadau’r GIG yn ymwneud ag ysmygu yn unig. Mae hyn yn costio o leiaf £1 filiwn y dydd o’ch cyllideb. Oni fyddai’n ddoeth cymryd tystiolaeth yn awr ac ystyried bwrw ymlaen â deddfwriaeth ar y cyfle cyntaf posibl?
