Hungary: tough new restrictions on public smoking

Thu 28th April, 2011

Prisons and hotel 'cigar rooms' are among a handful of exemptions to the smoking ban that was voted for by an overwhelming majority of Hungarian MPs this week.

The new law, to be introduced on January 1, 2012, will ban smoking in the workplace (including bars and restaurants) and on public transport. There will also be a ban on outdoor smoking near playgrounds, schools, creches and hospitals.
