The Government has no current plans to extend smokefree legislation to open spaces. It is for individual organisations and local authorities to decide if they want to adopt a more extensive no smoking policy. Public Health England will continue its work to encourage voluntary action to protect children from the harms from exposure to secondhand smoke.
