The lower house is debating a bill aimed at banning smoking at pubs and restaurants in the Czech Republic. The bill, now in its first reading, would radically change the pub scene in the country and there has been strong lobbying against it. All previous attempts to push through an effective anti-smoking law have failed and this bill’s passage through the lower house has been slower than expected. The chances of it coming into effect in January as planned are now practically nil.
