HC Deb 23 April 1996 vol 276 c68W
Mr. Dafis

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what was the target set in 1992 for the percentage of public places which should have effective no-smoking policies in place by 1994; what percentage figure was achieved in 1994; and what is the current percentage figure. [25842]

Mr. Clappison

In 1992, the Government's target was that 80 per cent. of public places should have effective smoking policies by the end of 1994. The statistical information is not available in the form requested. However, the report "Smoking in Public Places, 2nd Survey Report, " a copy of which has been put in the Library of the House of Commons, shows for eight categories of establishment the percentage with an effective smoking policy:

Category Percentage
Shops 63
Advice/money transactions 48
Travel 38
Health 71
Formal education 77
Informal education 62
Food/entertainment 37
Sports/recreation 48

The report relates to a survey carried out in 1995.
