Pleased to announce the publication of a new report next week.
Smoked Out: The Hyper-Regulation of Smokers in Outdoor Public Places has been researched and written by the Manifesto Club with Forest's support.
It comes out on Wednesday October 21 and to mark the occasion we're hosting a launch event at the Institute of Economic Affairs.
You are invited therefore to join us from 6.30pm for drinks followed by a handful of short speeches and a Q&A session from 7.15pm.
We'll be done and dusted – and in the pub – by 8.30.

Outdoor smoking bans are also on the agenda on Sunday at the annual Battle of Ideas (Barbican, London).
Josie Appleton, director of the Manifesto Club, and I will be joined by Barry Curtis who is campaigning against proposals to ban smoking in and around mental health facilities.
