From The Daily Mail:
Motorists could face prosecution for smoking while their children are in the car, under new proposals.
The move, outlined in the Welsh Assembly, could see Wales becoming the first country in Europe to impose the ban. It would mean drivers who light up at the wheel in England would be breaking the law if they continue as they cross the border…
Tory MP David Davies*, whose constituency in Monmouth sits on the border, also hit out at the move: “I don’t condone smoking and everyone knows it is bad for health and can kill people. But this move by the Welsh Government is reaching the stage where smokers are being victimised and that can’t be right.”
* Not to be confused with David Davis, which has led to all manner of hilarity!
