Dear Sir/Madam,


Walking past a bus stop in Edinburgh this evening, I was delighted to see that the tram roadworks had sprouted "No Smoking" signs. It's good to see TIE's contractors attempting to improve public health in this way although I wasn't aware that they had been given statutory powers to enforce such a ban.

The mass closure of pubs has been the predictable effect of the Scottish Government's smoking ban - something which I happen to applaud as an anti-alcohol campaigner. Perhaps this new edict will lead to the cancellation of the tram scheme as Auld Reekie's tobacco addicts abandon the streets in order to satisfy their cravings in the privacy of their own homes.
