public health chief says, Smoking should be banned in council housing
Housing association tenants would sign non-smoking agreement under proposed plans
Smoking should be banned in all new council houses to protect children from harmful second-hand smoke, a public health chief has said.
Anti-smoking campaigners consider smoke-free housing to be the next major frontier in reducing the harmful effects of passive smoking.
In 2015, the Government introduced a ban on smoking in all vehicles carrying children.
