Depends what you mean by 'they'

The Jihadist wing of the anti smoking movement regularly comes up with this idea and AFAIK that's it

Probably something to do with how many places have put 'structures' in place to enable them  to operate outside.

If this are more than 50% enclosed no smoking is allowed - this includes plastic sheeting at the sides  lol:

if this government truly wanted to help pubs recover from lockdown and truly cared for the lungs of children they'd end the smoking in pubs ban and introduce air standards instead.  No one should hold their breath waiting for such sense to prevail.  Instead thousands of smoking fathers will be opening their supermarket cans of Stella and chain smoking, watching TV with their kids in airless rooms  evil:
