    Abstract

    The Government published its much anticipated White Paper on public health on November 16th 2004. Amongst its key proposals is a measure to outlaw smoking in public areas, aimed at boosting public health by getting more people to quit and protecting non-smokers from breathing smoke fumes. But is this action fair? What will its likely impact be on firms in the leisure sector? Is it right for the state to interfere with the rights of individuals to choose? And, finally, what is the evidence that such a ban will actually work? This At your Leisure considers these issues and asks, is this the final drag for smoking in Britain?
