‘Should the UK government promote a particular brand of e-cigarettes as a ‘healthy alternative’ to conventional cigarettes? Should the use of e-cigarettes be discouraged or has government intervention already gone far enough?’

Use the extracts and your knowledge of economics to evaluate whether the UK government should encourage, discourage or do nothing more to affect the use of e-cigarettes. (25 marks)

Honestly any help with wording this 25 marker would be a blessing

I have a few points that I want to make e.g e-cigs are a suitable substitute for conventional cigarettes which are demerit goods, conventional cigarettes produce the negative externality of damage to others via second-hand smoke but also they damage their own health.
Also examples of existing and possible government intervention in the market for e-cigarettes to encourage their use – promotion, prescription on the NHS
