Children in car smoking ban 'would work', says Jim Hume MSP

Help

A bid to make smoking in vehicles when children are present illegal is being launched by an MSP.

South of Scotland Liberal Democrat MSP Jim Hume wants to introduce a members bills at the Scottish Parliament which would bring in a ban.

He is opening a public consultation on his proposals which he says would safeguard the rights of children.

Mr Hume told BBC Radio Scotland's Good Morning Scotland programme: "I think it is very obvious when someone is smoking in a car and it is very obvious when there is a child in the back or in the front seat that is being exposed to the smoke - so I say it is quite easily enforceable."
