Ban smoking when children in the car17th June 2009
The new head of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health has called for a ban on adults smoking in cars when children are passengers.
Professor Terence Stephenson said children deserved protection and should not have to breathe in their parents’ cigarette smoke. The move has been backed by the charity Action on Smoking and Health, while the Department of Health has said it would review smoking laws next year.
The Canadian province of New Brunswick, California, South Australia and Cyprus have already introduced such legislation.
