ASH Scotland’s Sheila Duffy (Letters, 13 October) predictably falsifies my views on banning smokers from children’s play areas. Far from objecting to inconvenience for smokers and rejecting children’s interests, I focused on neither smoking nor children, but on validity of argument.
In particular, I cited lack of supporting evidence of smoking in such playgrounds, but Ms Duffy declined my challenge to prove me wrong in questioning the problem’s existence. Surely she has relevant statistics?
