Is it time to extend the smoking ban?MoneySaving Poll Results

Souk

There are 1.9m fewer British smokers since the ban was introduced in England, Wales and Northern Ireland a decade ago (11yrs ago in Scotland). The ban makes it illegal to smoke in an enclosed public place and within the workplace, though it doesn't apply to e-cigarettes.

Is the ban right and should it be extended more?
