The Smoke-free Premises and Vehicles (Wales) Regulations 2018 Consultation

The Welsh Government is seeking views on proposals to extend the areas covered by smoke-free regulations and remove some exemptions.

The consultation is on draft regulations that will:

  • replace existing regulations which ban smoking in certain premises and in private vehicles carrying persons under 18

  • set the conditions for designating areas for smoking within smoke-free hospital grounds and grounds of schools that provide accommodation for pupils

  • place a time limit on the exemption that permits designating rooms in which smoking is permitted in mental health institutions

  • place a time limit on the exemption that permits designating rooms in which smoking is permitted in hotels, guesthouses, inns and members’ clubs

The closing date to respond to the consultation is 17 August 2018.
