Cloudy issue

ALTHOUGH I am a smoker, I must agree with Susan Webb (The Hunts Post, August 30) about the issue of people smoking in the cafeteria area of St Neots Leisure Centre. I fail to understand the logic of allowing smoking after 5.30pm. What difference does 5.30

ALTHOUGH I am a smoker, I must agree with Susan Webb (The Hunts Post, August 30) about the issue of people smoking in the cafeteria area of St Neots Leisure Centre. I fail to understand the logic of allowing smoking after 5.30pm. What difference does 5.30pm make?

Smoking is just as unpleasant and potentially harmful for staff and customers at 9am as it is at 9pm. The sooner smoking is banned in all enclosed public places, the better it will be for all of us, including smokers.

The comment by a spokesman from Huntingdonshire District Council that to ban smoking would have an impact on the leisure centres' income as private functions are held there is nonsense. The town council took the decision to ban smoking in the Priory Centre two years ago with no adverse impact on income. Come on, HDC, make all leisure centres smoke-free.
