Dear Editor,

SMOKING goes on now out on the pavements following last year's Act of Parliament banning it in pubs, cafes and all public places.

It means I can't walk down Bethnal Green with my three children in a 'smoke free zone.'

People from the Salmon & Ball pub, The Camden Head pub, offices, cafes, staff from Woolworth's and Tesco's supermarket all smoke outside on the pavement in Bethnal Green-road. Even teachers I notice smoke outside one school in the area.

I do not smoke and neither do my children (aged six, three and seven months).

But why should we have to inhale all this 'second hand smoke'?

Gloria McCormack

Globe-road, Stepney
