Government Stubs Out Car Smoking Ban Laws

The news comes as a woman was convicted of smoking in a vehicle containing a three-year-old child in what is believed to be one smoke cigarettesof the first prosecutions of its kind in Australia.

Britain was considering moves to introduce similar legislation next year as part of its review of ‘smoke-free laws’ introduced three years ago.

But a spokeswoman for the Department of Health told Sky this has now changed.

“The Government does not have any plans at this point in time to introduce legislation to prohibit smoking in private cars,” she said.

Health groups have long called for a ban in the UK, arguing that children should not have to breathe in their parents’ cigarette smoke in cars.

They questioned why there is legislation protecting adults from second-hand smoke, but none for children.

Martin Dockrell, of the anti-smoking charity Action on Smoking and Health (ASH), told Sky: “You’re strapping children into a metal box and you’re filling it with cigarette smoke.

“That’s surely tantamount to child cruelty.

“In fact, that’s not just my view - that’s the view of the great majority of the British population.”

According to Government figures, some 17,000 children are admitted to hospital every year as a direct result of exposure to second-hand smoke.

Campaigners say this figure could be greatly reduced if people stopped smoking in cars while children are in the back.

Professor Terence Stephenson, head of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, said second-hand smoke had been linked to chest infections, asthma and ear problems in kids.

Mr Dockrell welcomed news of Alison Manning’s conviction in Coffs Harbour, New South Wales, this week.

The 31-year-old was caught smoking in front of a friend’s young daughter after she was pulled over by police carrying out random breath tests.

She avoided a fine or sentence for the smoking offence but was banned and fined for other driving offences.
