To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what policy her Department has adopted on smoking in the workplace. [100924]

My Department discourages smoking in the workplace, due to its effects on health. Smoking is not, therefore, permitted at any time in buildings occupied by the Department, except in designated smoking areas. Such areas are made available, as a concession, only where it is practicable to do so.
