This committee from the Fourth
Assembly has been dissolved. New committees will be formed during the Fifth
These sub-committees are no longer actively meeting
following a letter on 14 May 2013 confirming the Welsh Government’s intention
not to seek an amendment to the Smoke Free Premises Regulations.
The National Assembly for Wales’s Enterprise and Business
Committee and Health and Social Care Committee have each established a
sub-committee to take evidence from interested parties on the Smoke-free
Premises etc. (Wales) (Amendment) Regulations 2012. The sub-committees will
join together to consider evidence at the same time.
The amendment creates an exemption from the smoke-free
requirements for performers, and will apply where: the performance is in
connection with the making of a film or television programme; the artistic
integrity of the performance makes it appropriate for the performer to smoke;
there are no members of the public viewing the making of the television
programme or film; and there are no children present in the part of the
premises where the performer would be smoking.
