    Coram Fields is one of the very few places specifically for children. Permitting smoking does not make sense.

    It is the discarded cigarette butts that cause me most concern as babies often pick them up and try to put them in their mouths.

    Smoking is of course already prohibited in Coram Feilds and there are some signs that state this. The problem is that the prohibition isn't enforced at all. I worry that child could inadvertently wonder into a carelessly held cigarette and causing a burn or even blind a child. And 'ends discarded on to the floor represent a real choking hazard (not to mention they are toxic). More signage (perhaps explaining the dangers), and polite, but constant and consistent, enforcement are what's needed.

    Totally obvious! Smoking must not be allowed to pollute the air breathed by children, especially children who are revovering from serious health conditions.

    Going to Corams fields is as much a time for children to play as it is for adults to get time outdoors. I do not agree that smoking should be banned as its the same as banning unhealthy food from family restaurants – the parents suffer too.\r\n\r\nHowever in the interest of the children I propose that perhaps a smoking section of the park should be considered. This will prevent children being put at risk where parents may leave the park to smoke and also maintains tax revenues for central government which can only enhance council funding for further children activities.

    Most likely the best thing is to designate a smoking area with ashtrays as well.

    Coram's Fields is ofetn visited by children who are being treated in Great Ormond Street Hopsital These children by definition often have very serious conditions and are particularly vulnerable to the effects of passive smoking.
