Title
UKHF responds to the Welsh Government's consultation on smoking in private vehicles
Date27 October 2014
Year 2014
Summary
The UKHF agrees with the proposal to make it an offence to smoke in an enclosed private vehicle when there is more than one person present and a person under the age of 18 is present. It is also reasonable to make all drivers, regardless of age or of whether they hold a full or provisional license, responsible for ensuring that smoking does not occur in vehicles with children present. All drivers already have a range of legal responsibilities as a consequence of being in charge of their vehicles.
