SMOKING IN THE WORKPLACE
EDM #1621
Tabled 12 July 2002
2001-02 Session
There has been an amendment to this EDM.
That this House notes the recent group statement by 29 of the world's leading cancer experts that passive smoking causes cancer; is consequently concerned about the serious health implications for the estimated three million non-smokers in the United Kingdom who are routinely exposed to passive smoke while at work; believes that employees in this situation need stronger protection and will continue to suffer unless government takes action; further notes new Office for National Statistics figures showing as many as 86 per cent. of the public are in favour of restricting smoking in workplaces; urges the Government to pay heed to the cancer experts' findings and implement the Health and Safety Commission-backed Approved Code of Practice on passive smoking at work with immediate effect; is convinced the ACoP would significantly reduce or eliminate passive smoking exposure; and further believes it is incomprehensible that business leaders continue to oppose the ACoP given that second-hand smoke is a killer.
