"A group challenging the legality of the smoking ban has given the Government a ‘last chance’ to consider amendments or face them in the High Courts.

Lawyers acting on behalf of Freedom to Choose have written to Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt and the Attorney General giving them 14 days to respond to their concerns or they will request a judicial review of the ban. The infringement of human rights is something everyone feels very strongly about and we are not going to go away.

The group is Freedom To Choose, and extremely valid and active representative of liberty in prohibition-plagued Britain. Here is a link to their site — along with our sincere congratulations!
