Royal Society for Public Health call for extension of smoking ban to the outside areas of bars and restaurants and all public parks and squares

In their latest report, “Smoking cessation: taking a harm reduction approach”, the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) have called for a number of measures to be introduced:   

  • Introduction of a smoking exclusion zone around pubs, bars and schools – allowing use of e-cigarettes but not allowing cigarette smoking. 
  • Greater utilisation of e-cigarettes by smoking cessation services.
  • Mandatory sale of Nicotine Replacement Therapy in shops selling cigarettes. 
  • Licensing of all purveyors of cigarettes so that Local Authorities can remove the license of any retailers found not to be acting in accordance with tobacco legislation, such as age restrictions and the display ban.
