Stony Stratford: council rejects amended outdoor smoking ban

The BBC is reporting that:

A proposal to ban smoking in parts of a Buckinghamshire town has been rejected by the town council.

A plan for a total smoking ban in public in Stony Stratford was first put forward in 2011 by independent councillor Paul Bartlett.

After protests, it was amended to limit it to certain public places, including play areas and car parks, but it was turned down by seven votes to one.

Mr Bartlett said the decision was "very disappointing".

He's a zealot, John. He will never get the message.
