Not that you were about to .. However, ahead of the legislation that requires us, along with all other enclosed public spaces, to display no smoking signs, I had yesterday to put these up in the Cathedral.
I had spoken with Anglican Deans about their protest at the requirement for these sings to be displayed in Cathedrals (and indeed all Churches), but the Government is unyeilding. Under pressure from the Church Commissioners it has, however, promised a review within three years.
The fact that nobody thinks of smoking in the Cathedral (or at least, not until these signs went up) bears little weight. Once again, the dull hand of bureaucracy reaches into the life of the Cathedral.
