A Breath Of Fresh Air As Wales Goes Smoke Free
Smoking Free Wales
Smoke-filled pubs, restaurants and workplaces will be consigned to the history books April 2007 as the smoking ban in enclosed public places comes into force in Wales.
The National Assembly for Wales was the first administration in the UK to back a motion to end smoking in all enclosed public places in January 2003.
Wales' First Minister Rhodri Morgan said:
- This is the single most important public health measure that the Assembly has introduced.
- Second-hand smoke in public places is estimated to cause 400 premature deaths a year.
