UK smoking ban set for 2008

 article about UK smoking ban set for 2008


Plans are being made for a ban on smoking in the UK.

By 2008 smoking in cafe's, restaurants and pubs that don't sell food will be prohibited.

It was this morning that the government launched it's consultation on proposals, however, reports that it would involve an outright ban were proved false.

Critics have said that the government haven't gone far enough, despite places like a bus stop being described as an "enclosed space", therefore being eligible for the ban.

Lib-Dem health spokesman Steve Webb has said that the government are holding back and "if the government are going to stop passive smoking because it is bad for you, then whether you are eating or not is irrelevant."
