Voice Of The Sunday Mirror: Stub out this deadly habit.

THERE is still a fag end of the smoking lobby that insists there is no such thing as passive smoking.

They say it is propaganda dreamed up by the anti-cigarette brigade.

If anybody still believes that, they should read our investigation today. Tests showed a week spent in some of the smokiest pubs and clubs was the equivalent of smoking almost a packet of 20 in a week.

Roy Castle, who never smoked, died of cancer because he inhaled the smoke of others during his show business career. He was killed by his greatest fans.

At least they did not know in those days that passive smoking kills. Today we have no excuse. Liverpool is to follow the example of Ireland and New York and ban smoking in public places.

Nobody has the right to inflict potentially lethal damage on others. The rest of the country should follow Liverpool's example.
