Scots parents urged not to smoke at home

26th March 2010

On the fourth anniversary of Scotland’s smoking ban, campaigners have called for more action to protect young people from passive smoking.

ASH wants to see moves to encourage adults not to light cigarettes when children are present and to think more carefully about smoking in the home. The charity believes there are about 300,000 children under 13 living with at least one parent who smokes. Smoking in public places in Scotland was banned on 26 March 2006 and has continuing public support.
