Partial smoking ban 'impossible' says Castle's widow

A partial ban on smoking - allowing it to continue in working men's clubs and separate smoking rooms - was condemned as a 'vote puller' by the widow of cancer victim Roy Castle today.
As the Government continues to struggle to reach an agreement on the smoking measures, Fiona Castle said it had not yet made a decision because it was 'afraid' of what people will say.

Any 'halfway house' would be useless and impossible to enforce as well as leaving employees exposed to smoke, the anti-smoking campaigner claimed.
