EU Commissioner: Smoking Bans not Draconian Enough
Posted by rantingkraut on October 29, 2008
EU Commissioner Vladimir Špidla seems to be upset that not all member states are as draconian as the UK in implementing the smoking ban:
“Smoking bans currently differ widely across the EU. While Ireland was the first EU country to make its pubs and restaurants smoke-free, puffing cigarettes is still allowed in some pubs in Germany and Belgium. And smoking is still common in both bars and restaurants in central and Eastern European countries like Hungary and Romania.” (source)
Clearly, such differences can’t be tolerated. This would be bordering on subsidiarity.
