The UK’s deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, has said he opposes as illiberal plans for a law banning smoking in cars when young people are present, according to a story in The Guardian.
He said smoking in such circumstances was irresponsible but he did not see how a law could be enforced.
Speaking on LBC’s Call Clegg program on Thursday, the deputy PM, who described himself as quite an old-fashioned liberal, said he didn’t think that legislation should be brought in unless it was believed that that legislation was going to make a difference.
He cast doubt on whether such legislation could be enforced properly.
