Total ban 'cannot be ruled out'

A ban on smoking in all public places in Guernsey has not been ruled out, the tobacco control officer has said.

The Health and Social Services Department (HSSD) is consulting on extending its ban to include all hospital buildings and grounds.

Smoking in enclosed public places was banned in 2006, but residents in HSSD buildings were exempt from the ban.

Gerry Le Roy said the consultation was islandwide so the community needs to decide what kind of ban is required.

The consultation leaflets, available on the States website, should be returned to the Health Promotion Unit by 1 February 2010.
