Stop smoking in Northern Ireland bus stations

I would like to petition for a full smoking ban in Northern Ireland bus stations. Please enforce or change a law to protect school children, like myself, from passive smoking and associated undesirable issues, such as arriving to school stinking of cigarette smoke. Ulsterbus are unable to enforce the no smoking rule which they have tried to implement. The 'Tobacco Control Officer' from my local council has advised me that the no smoking area is not enforceable because the bus stands are more than 50% open space. No one is taking responsibility to ensure non-smokers are protected in public places.

This e-petition has been rejected with the following reason given:

E-petitions cannot be used to request action on issues that are outside the responsibility of the government. This includes:

  • correspondence on personal issues

E-petitions cannot be used for freedom of information requests.

You can't sign this petition because it wasn't accepted for publication. But you can still give your opinion on it here at!
