By Magnus Gardham, Daily Record, Glasgow
JACK McConnell yesterday announced an all-out ban on smoking in public places.
In a historic speech to Parliament, the First Minister started the countdown to a smoke-free Scotland.
The ban will come into force in March 2006 and will apply to pubs, clubs, restaurants, workplaces and almost all other public places.
