The Hong Konggovernment has been urged to make bar managers liable for prosecution if people smoke inside their premises, according to a story in the Hong Kong Standard.
Since 2007, most public places in Hong Kong have been covered by a smoking ban and smokers have been liable to prosecution in the event that they broke the ban.
Now, the chairwoman of the Council on Smoking and Health, Lisa Lau, wants the law to be amended to make bar managers too liable for prosecution.
Lau said if bar managers helped stop people from smoking it would ease the pressure on the Tobacco Control Office.
