SCOTTISH SMOKERS, and visitors too, be warned. From 0600 on Sunday 26 March 2006 it will be illegal to light up in the majority of enclosed public spaces. This will include bars, restaurants, pubs, clubs and places of work, although designated hotel bedrooms will be exempt. The law has been introduced to protect people from the effects of passive smoking, which is estimated to claim the lives of up to 1,000 non-smokers every year in Scotland and is linked to lung cancer, heart disease, respiratory condition and strokes. Tourists visiting Scotland should be aware of the changes in legislation, and it is also important that everyone involved in the travel industry ” managers and staff of bars, restaurants, hotels and clubs ” are also alert to the policy.
