What Can £10 Buy

It can help pay for someone not to go to jail for trying to find the truth.

He launched his challenge after he was ordered to pay £1,250 in fines and costs for lighting up at the Bangor Castle HQ of North Down Borough Council in 2007.

His application for leave to seek a judicial review was adjourned on Monday after the court heard that all the necessary legal documents were not yet ready for the case.

Mr Carter wants the judicial review on the basis that the information which led to the introduction of the smoking ban was incorrect.

The 57-year-old has been involved in a four-year legal battle to quash his conviction for lighting up at the front of Bangor Town Hall in October 2007.
He was prosecuted under the Smoking (NI) Order 2006 because it was a no-smoking area. A fine and costs of £1,250 in total were imposed on him at the time.
Mr Carter represented himself in an attempt to judicially review the legislation. He claimed his rights to privacy and freedom from torture and discrimination were breached. A panel of judges dismissed his case last year.
He then applied yesterday to have his case reopened. Failing that, he also sought leave to apply to the Supreme Court.
However, Lord Justice Girvan dismissed his request and ruled that no certifiable point of public importance had been identified to warrant taking the case to the Supreme Court.

Further restrictions on smoking

Further restrictions on smoking | Breaking News:
An expert said yesterday Sri Lanka had the potential to introduce legislation calling for the total ban on tobacco consumption by those born after 2000.
Singapore National University Professor A.J. Berrick told a seminar on tobacco consumption that academics had submitted a research paper on the possibility of stopping tobacco consumption altogether by restricting the access to tobacco by individuals born after 2000.

Deputy Solicitor General Vijitha Malalgoda said there were practical difficulties in introducing such legislation but said it was a step in the right direction as it could make a significant impact on the reduction of tobacco consumption in the country.

Here we go again.

Let elderly smoke inside

Let elderly smoke inside:

Alberta's smoke-free legislation exempts in-patients or residents of group living facilities and permits designated smoking rooms.
If there aren't any accommodations, it is not because of the anti-tobacco legislation, it is because these old-age homes are making decisions that make the lives of their staff easier while torturing old people by kicking them outside to smoke.
There is nothing wrong with a dedicated smoking room well in sight of staff who can monitor potential problems.

That letter is in relation to this letter.

Truthfully I don't have much to say except again how grateful I am that both my elderly smoking parents live with me and not in some home where they would be forced out doors to smoke.
