Legal challege to smoke ban

29th June 2007

The Freedom to Choose group has launched a legal challenge at the High Court against England's smoking ban.

The group argue that the ban - due to begin on 1 July - is a contravention of Article One of the European Convention of Human Rights. The group's leader, Mr Robert Feal-Martinez, said they wanted "the government to realise a total ban is not necessary."

A judge will now make the decision about whether the group have enough of a case to constitute a full trial.
