The World

The West German government plans to ban smoking in hospitals, medical offices, schools and many public offices, a member of Parliament said. Roland Sauer, a health adviser to Chancellor Helmut Kohl's ruling Christian Democratic Union party, told the Cologne Express newspaper that any employee in any office who disapproves of the habit would have the right to have it banned. Taxes on all tobacco products also would be increased. Sauer said the bill will be drawn up this year, and he predicted it will have little difficulty in gaining a majority in Parliament.
