Introduction

Should Wales follow England and Ireland's lead and completely ban smoking in public places. I think that Wales should follow Ireland and England's ban on smoking in public places. The first reason why I think Wales should follow the ban on smoking in public places is the smoking atmosphere is damaging the health and irritates some people for example people who is asthmatic. Another reason why Wales should follow the ban is it would make the air less polluted so non-smokers would have better health because they wouldn't have to inhale the smoke from the cigarettes; it would also decrease the risk of cancer if they stopped smoking in public places because the non-smokers wouldn't have to inhale the smoke from the cigarettes. ...read more.

It would prevent fires because people wouldn't be throwing there cigarette ends on the ground. That would also reduce the amount of litter being thrown on the ground for example cigarette packaging, cigarette ends, lighters, match boxes and matches. Additionally, workers should have the right to breathe clean air when they are working instead of the smoky air that they are already breathing. Some of the workers that I am talking about are people who work in pubs and restaurants. On the other hand, there are some reasons why Wales should not follow Ireland and England's ban on smoking in public places. The first reason why I think they should not ban smoking in public places is that smokers should be-able to smoke because it is their life to live be it? ...read more.

Conclusion

Furthermore the factories that make the cigarettes would also lose money from the sale of cigarettes so they wouldn't need all the staff they have now which would mean lots of people would be out of a job. The argument that I found most compelling is to ban smoking in public places because when we done a survey in the class most people where for the ban. The results of the survey where 80% for the ban and 20% against the ban. I also agree with this argument because it would improve the health of the non-smokers because they wouldn't have to inhale the smoke from the cigarettes which the smokers are smoking, it would also reduce the amount of litter in and around the environment that we live. ?? ?? ?? ??

  1. Should smoking be banned in public places?

    Smoking is then banned inside and outside the building and so it goes on. In addition, by making the smokers go outside, say they're near a busy road, which is more often than not, who knows what the Carbon Monoxide and other junk churned out by cars and lorries are doing to them.

  2. Why the smoking ban shouldnt be revoked

    Another problem she points out is the fact that "the smoker will constantly interrupt the conversation to go and have a smoke outside." An average meal lasts about one or two hours and going without a cigarette in that short space of time means that you've got a serious problem on your hands.
