Smoking e-cigarettes inside could be banned under Dundee City Council-backed plans.
Councillors have been asked to approve a Scottish Government proposal to prohibit the smoking of electronic cigarettes indoors.
If approved nationally, the plans would see e-cigarette use face the same restrictions as regular tobacco.
Smokers’ rights group Forest have slammed the proposals, claiming that the officials involved appeared to be “more interested in control than public health”.
The city council’s environment convener Craig Melville said the move is part of a “major battle” against smoking.
He said: “I am very keen that the same restrictions as the general smoking ban can be placed on e-cigarettes as soon as is possible.
“This would be to the advantage of the health of people across Dundee and Scotland.
