Klink firm on smoking ban

Health minister Ab Klink said on Tuesday he had no intention of amending the ban on smoking in cafes and bars, despite last week’s court ruling which said bar owners without personnel were being unfairly hit.

Nor would there be fewer inspections to make sure the law was not being broken, Klink said.
Klink pointed out that last week’s ruling by a court in Breda was totally different to a similar case in Groningen. He said he would wait for the appeal court’s position before taking any further action.
