HC Deb 15 July 1957 vol 573 c86W
79. Mr. Edelman

asked the Minister of Health whether he will send a circular to local authorities recommending that there should be a ban on smoking in all public confined spaces within their control.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

There is nothing to prevent local authorities from banning smoking within their own premises as proprietors of some theatres have done. But this is not a matter for a Government circular.
