To ask the Scottish Government when it will publish a response to the results of the Prohibiting smoking outside hospital buildings: consultation.

Current status: Answered by Maree Todd on 10 November 2021


The consultation analysis on prohibiting smoking outside hospital buildings was published in June 2020. This independent analysis showed widespread public support for the proposals to introduce a 15 metre smoke-free perimeter around hospital buildings.

The Scottish Government intends to put the proposals, supported by the public consultation, to the Scottish Parliament in early 2022.
