I am pleased to report that David Nuttall, Conservative MP for Bury North - one of several MPs who attended Smoke On The Water (the Forest boat party) in July - has tabled the following Ten Minute Rule Motion in the House of Commons:
Public Houses and Private Members’ Clubs (Smoking)
That leave be given to bring in a Bill to exempt public houses and private members’ clubs from the requirements of Part 1 of the Health Act 2006 relating to smoke-free premises; and for connected purposes.
A supporter of the Save Our Pubs & Clubs campaign, David will give a speech to the House in support of the motion on October 13.
Update: David has just agreed to speak at Forest's fringe meeting at the Conservative conference on Monday October 4. See below.
