 Belgians Support Public Smoking Ban: Poll

A poll showed ahead of World No Tobacco Day that two-thirds of Belgians favour a smoking ban in cafes and restaurants, marking a jump in support for a law already in force in many parts of Europe.

In 2004, 49 percent of Belgians supported the ban, but this figure has risen to 65 percent in 2010, according to a poll by the global research company Ipsos, carried out on behalf of the Foundation Against Cancer.

"There is growing support from the population for a ban on smoking in restaurants and cafes," the foundation said.

The growing consensus is less pronounced among restaurant owners, with just over half favouring a ban, and cafe owners who are 57 percent in favour of the ban.

Ipsos interviewed 1,000 people and 200 restaurant and cafe owners between April 28 and May 3.

World No Tobacco Day is on May 31.
