Any ban always requires enforcing though doesn't it. . . . I can't see there being the man power to 'police' something like this . . . the smoking ban has also contributed to the litter on the streets outside pubs round my way.
It'll be interesting to see what sort of a response you get Roachie from your ecig enquiry.

I dont do pubs or clubs havnt done now for around 3 years as i havnt drank for 2 years so doesnt bother me.But Stony isnt the best place to introduce this no smoking ban its one of them places you dont go of a weekend unless you like a fight then its great but most pubs in the area have around 2-3 fights a weekend and thats honest.Its quiet a horrid lil town once the sun goes down.Certainly not a place i would step foot in for pubbing in.But its a nice lil town for shopping.
I shall let you know what sort of response i get if any.

I would like peoples views on this as i have already submitted one email and was quiet lengthy sent it this afternoon after wording it correctly.But i would like your views if your local or not.Which i shall also submit.
Many thanks for your time and help.
**edit** I have also added some of what you said perp if that is ok hope you didn't mind about the police issue and manpower
Not at all Roachie . . . I'd have thought with local council cut backs, Council Tax payers could think of something of far more use to the Community that the money could be spent on, than employing a person to tell smokers to stub their ciggies out.
Plus all the signage, that's far from inexpensive.
It would seem that it's not the Town Council's view, just the personal view of one Councillor . . . .
“At present the Town Council has yet to debate the issue and therefore any views expressed are clearly personal ones. For my own part, while the idea may be appealing, I think we have to ask what problem this is trying to resolve. If it is a matter of litter, there may be a better solution through the provision of further ashtrays or litter bins. I am sure that all the other councillors will have views on Councillor Bartlett’s proposal and I look forward to the debate on July 19.”
