Countdown to the ban
On 1 July, smoking in enclosed public places will be banned across the UK.

Scotland and Wales already have such a ban; Northern Ireland's ban began on Monday, 30 April; England's ban starts 1 July.

The Magazine will be counting down the weeks with a series of articles about the impact of the ban on life in Britain.
