To ask the Scottish Government whether it will consider changing legislation to ensure that smoking will become prohibited around children’s playgrounds, outdoor sports facilities and play parks.

Answered by: Joe FitzPatrick 6 March 2019

Our Action Plan in 2018 stated that we will monitor the implementation of smoking bans in Wales and the implementation of guidance produced by COSLA and NHS Health Scotland on creating smoke-free areas to assess whether legislation is warranted in Scotland.
