HC Deb 11 March 1991 vol 187 c422W
Mr. Amos

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what plans he has to support smokers in his Department to give up smoking on the eighth No Smoking Day on 13 March; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. McLoughlin

Posters advertising No Smoking Day and information leaflets will be displayed in all the Department's main offices throughout the country, and an article will be placed in the Department's in-house journal. Guidance has been given to all staff on damage to health caused by smoking. Welfare officers are on hand to give help and advice to staff who wish to give up smoking and on the availability of classes for this purpose. However, in the end it is a matter of individual choice.
