Smoking ban has ‘turned town centres into ashtrays’

Sunday, December 30th, 2007

Since the ban on smoking came into force in England in July, councillors, pub landlords and environmental campaigners said that the litter problem had increased sharply in East Lancashire.

It is said to be particularly on Saturday and Sunday mornings after the weekend nights out, when streets outside pubs are littered with discarded cigarettes.

But it is not just the night-time economy that is affected – the outsides of many offices and workplaces have similar piles of fag ends.

Mr Southam said: “Unfortunately it’s one of these things that the Government dictate to the country without thinking about the consequences on everybody.”
