Smoking in all England's cafés, restaurants and most pubs could be banned under new plans being announced by the UK government.

A White Paper on Public Health unveiled today (16 November) will propose a ban on smoking in most enclosed public areas, including offices and factories, smoke-free.

Patrons of private clubs and pubs which do not serve prepared food will still be allowed to smoke on those premises. But it is expected the ban will cover around 90% of bars.

The White Paper follows a blanket ban on smoking put forward by the Scottish Executive.

The plans are part of a White Paper that covers obesity, drinking and sexual and mental health, which hopes to encourage people to live healthier lifestyles.
