Smoking ban is killing our trade

Saturday, May 26th, 2007

LICENSEES in Fife are urging the Scottish Executive to scrap the smoking ban amid claims some premises are heading for financial ruin.

Jim Paul, President of the Fife United Clubs’ Association, reacted angrily to an NHS Fife spokesman’s comments that the clubs’ concerns were “silly.” He said: “The health board are talking verbal diarrhoea. “Obviously they have never been in a club to see what life is like as we are feeling the bite and losing up to £2000 a month.

“It is not just pubs and clubs that are struggling either, as the Fraser Bowl in Glenrothes has also seen a massive downturn in revenue as a direct result of the ban.”
