Smoke ban reception update

Reaction to the Save Our Pubs & Clubs reception at the House of Commons, announced yesterday:

The Morning Advertiser has the story here: Pubs invited to smoke-ban event.

See also: Save Our Pubs & Clubs plans Commons reception as it lobbies for ‘smoking rooms’ (Public Affairs News) and Campaigners lobby MPs to change smoking ban‎ (Harpers Wine & Spirit Trades Review).

Thanks to londonmum for posting the announcement on The Sun discussion forum: Save Our Pubs & Clubs - smokers alert!!

Ditto Angela Harbutt for posting on Liberal Vision: Save Our Pubs & Clubs – join us in Westminster on June 29

Please let me know of any other reports or links. Events such as this need to develop momentum so if there are any other bloggers reading this we'd appreciate a plug!

PS. To Frank Davis who commented, on our Facebook page, "Thanks for the invitation. I don't think I need to lobby my latest MP. He's one of the few who voted against the ban", I couldn't disagree more.

We have to keep lobbying those who are onside in order to maintain their support. If MPs don't hear from constituents on this issue they will think it no longer matters or that public support for the ban is almost universal.

As any political campaigner will tell you, never take the core vote for granted. Get your supporters out, then target the swing voters.
