Zelfregulering horeca in Engeland heeft gewerkt

Uit een onderzoek van de Engelse Charter Group blijkt dat de zelfregulering van de Engelse pubs voor wat betreft de terugdringing van rookoverlast heeft gewerkt. 63 procent voldoet nu aan de normen die men zich gesteld had.

De havikken in de Engelse regering zijn echter nog niet tevreden en eisen meer…

The Charter promotes self-regulation on smoking through the use of signage, good ventilation and no-smoking areas where possible. Industry leaders hope the success of the initiative will give a signal to the government that self-regulation is the way forward for the pub trade rather than an outright smoking ban.

Announcing the results of independent research into the effectiveness of the Charter on Smoking, Nick Bish, head of the industry’s Charter Group, said: “This is great news and a tribute to the hard work invested by operators at every level.

“I hope this will put an end to much of the speculation and scaremongering that we have encountered recently.

“It does not mean that we can relax and do nothing – all of the evidence shows that customers and staff prefer cleaner air, whether they smoke or not.

“If we want to prosper we must deliver it through smoking restrictions and effective ventilation. “Self-regulation provides us with the flexibility to do this according to our own trading styles and circumstances.”

  • 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."
