Ministry wants more smoke-free hotels

KUALA LUMPUR: More hotels in Malaysia should be declared smoke-free in a bid to reduce the amount of second-hand smoke in public places, said the Health Ministry.

“There are a number of hotels where smoking is banned in the entire premises and this is encouraged.

“I am also confident that the people are receptive towards such an initiative and we have to push forward this agenda,” said ministry deputy director-general (public health) Datuk Dr Lokman Hakim Sulaiman.

He said this during a joint operation to curb smoking in public vehicles like buses and taxis at the Sungai Besi toll plaza here yesterday.
