Playground smoking ban from next year

From 1 January next year smoking will be banned in and around places frequented by children, such as playschools, creches, recreational centers, play parks and holiday camps.

Playground smoking ban from next year

The measure was passed on Thursday in Parliament.

In 2016 the government put forward a proposal for the law to be reviewed, which also aimed to have smoked banned in the vicinity of hospitals and pharmacies as well as within five metres of doors and windows, but that failed to push ahead.

The new measure is part of a set of measures that aim to protect citizens from passive smoking.
