Smoking enforcement liaison group formed
A new national liaison group has been established to deal with the subject of enforcement of the Smoke-Free initiative, with a meeting having been held in Milngavie, near Glasgow this week. It was attended by Smoking Enforcement Officers, Environmental Health Officers and Managers representing almost all of Scotland's local authorities. The delegates were addressed by Mary Cuthbert of the Scottish Executive's tobacco control unit and by Lisa Buck from Scotland's Health at Work. Evonne Tennant of the host authority, East Dunbartonshire Council chaired. It was agreed the meeting had been extremely useful for sharing information and good practice and that the group would continue to meet on a quarterly basis, with the next scheduled meeting expected to be held in Falkirk in early December.
