Commission calls for Smoke Free Europe by 2012.

The European Commission adopted in June 2009, after extensive consultation, a proposal for
Council- Recommendation calling on all Member States to bring in laws to protect their citizens from
exposure to tobacco-smoke by 2012. Tobacco remains the largest single cause of premature death and
disease in the European Union. According to conservative estimates, 79,000 adults, including
19,000 non-smokers, died in the EU-25 in 2002, due to exposure to tobacco smoke at home (72,000 )
and in their workplace (7,300).

UK and Ireland have the strictest smoking prohibited provisions with a complete ban on smoking in
enclosed public places, on public transport and in work-places. A recent Eurobarometer poll suggests
that popularity is mounting for non-smoking policies with 84% of Europeans supporting smoke-free offices
and other indoor workplaces; 77% in restaurants, and 61% in bars and pubs.

The European Union's 27 member states are being urged to do more
to turn Europe into a smoke-free zone.

Health Commissioner Markos Kyprianou raised the prospect of EU-wide legislation to achieve this goal,
as he launched a public debate in Brussels. Officials say passive smoking kills 79,000 Europeans per annum,
which is about one in nine of all tobacco-related deaths. Ireland was the first EU country to ban smoking in
all indoor public spaces, and the UK will follow suit 2007. Some other EU countries have introduced partial
bans, which allow smoking rooms in bars and restaurants. A poll published 2006 suggested that smoking bans
were popular in countries where they had been introduced. Overall, more than 80% of respondents across
the EU said they favoured a ban in all public indoor spaces - though the figure dropped to 61% when
respondents were asked specifically if they supported a ban in bars.
