Asked if the Prime Minister thought a total ban on smoking in public places was wrong in principle, the PMOS replied that what we had was a situation where there was a balance between the rights of non-smokers and the desire for people to smoke. What we had to try and do was achieve a balance, and that was what the Government had done. As people knew, what it would result in was a situation where smoking was banned in most public and working places. Therefore, what we had tried to do was approach this in a way that balanced the two rights.
