There will also be a further crackdown on tobacco advertising, cigarette logos will be banned from umbrellas and other merchandising materials.

Building owners who do not monitor and crack down on companies which allow smoking in closed areas will be fined.

The proposals are set to be discussed over the next few weeks, said a health ministry spokesman.
