The government has decided to ban smoking in public places from summer 2007. I think this is great news!!!

Hasn't happened in Ireland... smokers have just accepted it and huddle outside for a fag. Most pubs haven't been hit by much of a knock-on effect.

Yes Stu, of course that's what'll happen. Plus the pub trade will benefit from more non-smokers using them, or staying longer.

Football stadiums may well be included.

Smoking OUTSIDE licensed premises may be banned as well.

When all vehicles burning fossil fuels are banned, I'll give up smoking !

I don't like pollution either, but the difference is that cars serve a purpose in the working world, where as smoking serves no purpose at all.

I can't understand how many smokers have no concern for others when it comes to secondary smoke. It really makes me mad!!!

I am currently trying to give up smoking and attending a stop smoking clinic.
The woman who runs the programme drives there via the M25,she sometimes has a higher carbon dioxide reading than some of the smokers.
I am not saying that smoking should not be banned, but car pollution is just as bad.

This from the speedway forum might help with the stadium question, I hope it wont be much different in England ....


I posted on the 'Monarchs Chatzone' a few weeks back that the smoking legislation will impact on Speedway. I believe that smoking will not be allowed under the cover on the back straight, in the pits, the referee's box, the office, the bar or the hospitality suits, In fact any covered area which has wall and is more that 50% enclosed. [color:"red"] [/color] There could well be two referees no so keen to officiate in Scotland this year, although it may be good for them to do without the dreaded weed.

As (Snapper) said it comes into force up here on 26 March and each public place has to have specific sized signs in place and enforce the ban as knowingly allowing smoking to take place in an area where smoking is banned makes the organisation in charge liable to a fine up to £2500 with the person who is smoking also being liable to a fine. Local authorities are being funded to appoint 'wardens' to police the legislation and impose fines.

Pammie mentioned the bus shelters in Edinburgh - the legislation covers bus shelters which have walls and is more than 50% enclosed - all over Scotland. Linlithgow railway station has already implemented the ban on the platform which has a canopy.
