Free guide to smoking ban

FLEETS are being offered a free drivers’ guide to the ban on smoking in company vehicles, which came into force in Wales this week.

Any business can order the guide, which has been produced by leasing company Alphabet for its employees.

It explains which vehicles are affected and what firms and drivers must do to comply with the ban, which comes into force in England on July 1.

A Welsh Assembly Government spokesman said: ‘The legislation applies to company cars used by more than one person when they cross the border into Wales. 

‘Enforcement officers in Wales will be providing advice and support to businesses about compliance.’

  • For a copy of the Alphabet guide, contact Alphabet on 0870 5050100 or email: alphabet@alphabet.co.uk.
