Smokefree legislation/ initiatives
Smokefree legislation was introduced in 15 August 2007. It is very similar to smoking ban in Spain. Smoking is banned in workplaces, public indoor areas, institutions and schools, public transport and the hospitality sector. There are several exemptions: in workplaces an employer can decide to allow smoking in designated smoking rooms or smoking cabins, and in rooms where only one person works. All restaurant, cafés and eating places are smokefree, but owners may set up designated smoking rooms or smoking cabins, where there is no service. If alcohol but no food is served, and where the serving area is <40m2, the owner can permit smoking in the entire area. Smoking is also allowed in care homes and psychiatric facilities. The law was due to be reviewed in 2010 but at the end of March 2008 MPs voted to ban smoking in all pubs and cafes, including those <40m2. Pub owners will continue to be allowed to set up smoking cabins.
