Spanje blijft roken

Ondanks dat er dit jaar een rookverbod voor de horeca in Spanje is afgekondigd blijft 90% van de bars roken toestaan. Volgens José Luis Guerra, woordvoerder voor de Spaanse Hoteliers Federatie (FEHR), hebben de 300.000 bars die bij zijn organisatie zijn aangesloten bordjes op hun voordeur gehangen waarop wordt aangegeven dat roken binnen is toegestaan.
According to a José Luis Guerra, spokesman for the Spanish Hoteliers Federation (FEHR), “I don’t know if it’s 85% o 90%, but the vast majority of bars with a total surface area of less than 100 square metres have decided to let their customers continue smoking.”

Mr Guerra said that the fact that the more than 300,000 belonging to the organisation have taken this decision was “predictable,” and added that most have put up temporary signs on the front doors of their establishment advising potential customers that smoking is permitted. These will be replaced with permanent signs once each regional Health authority issues guidelines with respect to text and layout. 


Mr Guerra also insisted that owners of establishments over 100 square metres will struggle to comply with an eight month deadline to provide separate smoking areas equipped with independent ventilation systems if normal delays with respect to the granting by regional governments in granting planning permission, persist.

  • I've alllllllways said that asking smokers "do you want to quit?" and reporting the results of that question, as is, is horribly misleading. It's a TWO part question. After asking if one wants to quit it must be followed up with "Why?" Ask why and the majority of the answers will be "because I'm supposed to" (victims of guilt and propaganda), not "because I want to."
