Where will smoking be banned?
Smoking will be banned in almost all enclosed public spaces across England from the summer of 2007. This includes all workplaces, such as pubs, cinemas, offices, factories and public transport.
Are there any exceptions?
People will still be allowed to smoke outdoors, in private homes, and in places the health secretary, Patricia Hewitt, deems to be "like homes", under discretionary "general powers of exemption" in the health bill.
These include residential care homes, army barracks, psychiatric hospitals and prisons.
How will breaches be punished?
