More European Bans Down Pan

30th June 2010.

Here's more good news on the smoking ban front. Bulgaria's smoking ban lasted just three days, making it the shortest smoking ban in the world – shorter even than the ban imposed in the European Parliament in 2007, which lasted six weeks.

Amendments were brought in to relax the smoking ban, prompted by fears of damage to the economy, especially the tourist trade. The changes will allow discretion to allow smoking in certain establishments and provision to be made for smoking staff.

In the Netherlands, landlords have always adopted a rebellious attitude to the ban, and have gained considerable public support and funding, while many of them choose to risk fines rather than take the economic hits that would result from turning their smoking customers out of doors. Now a change of government is likely to consider changes, with one health spokesman conceding, 'It's hard for small bars.'

Are you listening, Mr Lansley? Licencees' adherence to the ban cost thousands of them their livelihoods, and the affection of many smokers to boot.
