Business and Planning Bill; Amendment 18: Pavement licences may only be granted by a local authority subject to the condition that smoking is prohibited.

The amendment to the Business and Planning Bill proposes that restaurants, cafes and pubs outside spaces are to be smoke free.

Smoking immediately outside premises, can cause smoke to drift into work places. This can therefore effect staff and customers. Outside seating areas in restaurants, cafes and pubs should protect everybody from second-hand smoking. Additionally, making places more family friendly and moving towards a smoke free country by 2030.
