Smoking in a car with children


Health Minister Edwin Poots has said he would consider banning smoking in all cars, not just those with children as passengers.

Mr Poots was speaking following an assembly motion on Monday which proposed a ban on smoking in cars carrying those under-16.

He said children are particularly vulnerable to the effects of smoking.

BBC Newsline's Julian O'Neill has spoken to campaigners for a ban who have measured the damage tobacco smoke could cause in the confines of a car.
