While thanking my hon. Friend for his reply, may I draw his attention to the rights of non-smokers in these places, and may I ask whether he will view sympathetically any amending legislation which would assist both the local authorities and the cinemas, both of whom have shown interest in this matter? Will he also bear in mind that any assistance of this sort that the Government might give would effectively help the campaign against cigarette smoking?
