Norway’s left-center proposed a string of measures, including an outdoor smoking ban, to tighten existing laws, reports Dagsavisen.

Current laws have banned or highly restricted smoking indoors for years, but now the government also wants to ban smoking outdoors, for example at the entrances to public buildings and in the outdoor areas of bars, restaurants and cafés. Many were set up to accommodate smokers who no longer were able to smoke inside.

Other proposals include bans on all smoking, indoors or outdoors, at public institutions, schools and day care centers.

The government also seeks a ban on toy cigarettes and sale of cigarettes with just 10 in a pack.

The government’s new proposals will be up for hearings this autumn. (pi)
