BBC said:Smoking in enclosed public places will be banned in England from 1 July next year, the government has announced.
The ban covers virtually all enclosed public places including offices, factories, pubs and bars, but not outdoors or in private homes.
It follows similar bans in the Irish Republic and Scotland - a ban in Wales starts on 2 April.
So, no smoking in pubs after next July. Great news if you ask me.
