HC Deb 24 March 2003 vol 402 c78W
Paul Flynn

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment he has made of the British Medical Association's report, "Towards Smoke-free Public Places". [93685]

Ms Blears

We welcome the report which provides a clear and helpful assessment of the issues involved in dealing with environmental tobacco smoke.

We want to work with businesses and others to achieve real change, highlighting and building on best practice. We want to build on the work already undertaken under the Public Places Charter and are funding local tobacco control alliances to work with local employers to tackle passive smoking.
