An extensive report published by the Office of Tobacco Control reveals that one in five smokers now choose not to smoke at all on a night out.
Health minister Micheal Martin welcomed the report. 'The successful introduction of the new measure reflects the widespread public support and goodwill that exists for a healthy smoke-free environment in the workplace,' he said.
Dave Molloy, OTC chief inspector, said 66 per cent of the inspections related to licensed premises, where most of the controversy surrounding the ban was targeted when it was introduced on March 29.
