Smokefree legislation is now in force. From 1 July 2007, England implemented the Health Act 2006, which made virtually all indoor public places and work places smokefree, including work vehicles. Smoking is not be allowed in pubs, private members clubs, offices, shops, factories, restaurants and taxis - in fact in any enclosed space where people are working.
It follows the successful implementation of smokefree legislation in several countries including Scotland and the Republic of Ireland.
The legislation is designed to protect workers and members of the Public from the serious health risks of second hand smoke. As a result, people working in bars, restaurants, pubs and other workplaces will enjoy breathing fresh air.
