The Home Office supports the right to work in a smoke-free environment. The Health Act 2006 and similar laws in Scotland and Wales ban workplace smoking.

Home Office staff must not smoke or use e-cigarettes anywhere on Home Office premises including:

• buildings, vehicles and land – this includes all walkways, access areas and car parks

• outside entrances and exits of buildings

• private vehicles parked on Home Office premises
