Response

Further to your FOI requesting how much money is spent on cigarettes, cigars, snuff and other smoking paraphernalia for the financial years 2002/03, 2003/04, 2004/05, 2005/06, 2006/07, 2007/08, 2008/09, 2009/10, 2010/11 and 2011/12, I can confirm that the answer is NIL.

I have attached a copy of our Smoking Policy. Staff are permitted to smoke in the designated smoking area in the South Car Park (this is written in their contract), whilst members and third parties are allowed to smoke anywhere outside.
