Ten minute Rule Motion: Mr David Nuttall: Public Houses and Private Members’ Clubs (Smoking): That leave be given to bring in a Bill to exempt public houses and private members’ clubs from the requirements of Part 1 of the Health Act 2006 relating to smoke-free premises; and for connected purposes.This is the first opportunity since the Bill was passed in February 2006 to bring pressure on MPs. Readers in Scotland will have their own feelings about whether lobbying their MPs on this subject is ethical! But remember that the lobby groups working to maintain the ban will be hard at work throughout the UK. Your MP still represents your interests and is accountable to you, wherever you live.
Please take every opportunity to open a dialogue with your MP on this subject and make him/her understand that there is a genuine case for a relaxation of the smoking ban.
