SUBMISSION FROM RICHARD TRAIL
The Prohibition of Smoking in Regulated Areas (Scotland) Bill
I write in support of the general principles of the above Bill. As a non-smoker myself I will appreciate the absence of smoke in restaurants. The elimination of smoking from trains, and planes has been most welcome and it is astonishing that we put up with it for so long. Smoke free restaurants seems like the next logical step.
The health of the Scottish people should be one of the priorities of the government of Scotland. The continuing pressure to reduce the number of people smoking is one of the cheapest and easiest ways of improving the general health of the population. And it brings an improvement in the quality of life for those of us not addicted to the weed.
