News on Tobacco Control

   

1 Nov 2006

The Smoking (Public Health) (Amendment) Bill 2005 was passed into law by the Legislative Council of Hong Kong SAR on 19 Oct 2006. According to the amendment ordinance, smoking will be prohibited in the vast majority of indoor areas of workplaces and public places, such as restaurants, office, schools, hospitals, markets, karaokes and bars with effect from 1 January 2007. Six types of "qualified establishments" such as night clubs and mahjong parlors may implement the smoking ban by 1 July 2009 the latest.

As smoking, whether first hand or second hand, is one of the risk factors for cervical cancer, Cervical Screening Programme fully supports the amendment ordinance and would advise the public to avoid or give up smoking.
