Smoke ban respected

24th September 2007

New figures have suggested that the vast majority of smokers in England have been respecting the ban on smoking in enclosed public places.

The charity Asthma UK polled 2,500 adults over the ban, which was introduced in England in July, and 97% said they were either not smoking where it is banned or were giving up completely. In addition, 75% said the ban had been good for their health. The survey also found that smokers with asthma were trying to stop faster than the general population.
