At the bar? You filthy criminal, you'd better not be in the UK. Soon there won't be any drinking or talking in bars either, thank god.

The last cigarette I smoked in a bar was last month in FI. I had been expecting it to be luxury - out of the cold and wet for a change - but I felt strangely uncomfortable.

Ended up going outside to smoulder in the snow. :(

I think I'm now the last smoker in the unit. It's very lonely during smoke breaks, but you've got to maintain tradition.

Just about to nip out for a sly drag now. And where is the smoking area? Next to the mortuary of course. Who says that there's no humour in healthcare?

Smokers here have nice little shelters, but they are in plain view of the offices, so anyone smoking can be seen it is amzing how this alone has cut down on this strange habit.

Dont worry chaps, summer time shall be top as we rule the beer garden once more.

However here in Germany there is still no sign of smoking in pubs being banned, despite the scare stories in the Sixth Sense.

Interesting point here. Legally one cannot smoke in an establishment that has....FREE access to the general public....so....if some publican charges his customers....say, a 10 pence fee..then his establishment is no longer FREE????? Any legal eagles care to comment?

You can't legally smoke in private members clubs, for which there are fees, so I assume it wouldn't hold.

Is that actually true? Or is it the Committee being obtuse and not reading the law correctly?

An interesting point. If a landlord OWNS a Free House pub, the building comprises both licenced premises and private accommodation.

Smoking is clearly prohibited in the licenced premised, but presumably the private accommodation is exempt.

If then, the landlord invites selected guests to smoke in his private accommodation (and, of course, does not object to them taking with them the drinks that they bought in the licenced premises - which are licenced for sales on and off the premises), is the law being broken?

Somebody told me that this argument had been used successfully in Ireland, but I don't know if it's an urban myth.

They should prohbit the sale of smokes.

Its inconsitant that smokes are legal as products that are less damaging are banned.
Who asked you?

Numerous .gov websites have all private members' clubs as smoke-free. E.g. http://www.westdevon.gov.uk/services/resources/EHSmokefreelegislation-privatemembersclubs.pdf

Does the law leave a loophole?
