    Do you reckon that some of these laws might also apply to Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland?

      not sure, i think some of them allready apply , and some do not. they all have own rule now. northern ireland have own rule for ages. that is why i say england. personally i dont think it is a good idea to have different rules apply … everyone should be subjected to the same laws. otherwise it smells of favouritism.

        It says where the rules apply in the article…

    it mentions it on some of the rules. but it is not clear.
    for eg, ‘This rule applies to England; housing is a devolved issue in Wales and Scotland’. at the end of the rule for smoke alarms and CO . so what would u conclude from that? do wales and scotland have the same thing, or what?
    another one, for smoking in cars quote A similar law is expected to follow soon in Scotland unquote. so it looks like this law is only for england. it did not say if it is also for wales and northern ireland or is it? or have those two allready got it?… so what would u conclude?
    there is to me not clear which applies or allready have those rules, so i decided the clearest one is that it is new in england and will apply in england. all the others allready have it, or intend to implement it or ignore it entirely.
    i consider it rather similar to the bag 5p cost in england. all the others have it, but england dont have (until now and then we get all the hoo hah about it in the papers. i did not know the others allready have to pay for their bags until now).i suppose u could complain that the newspapers are too england centric. haha. well majority of people live in england so why shouldn’t the news be england centric. scotland only have 5million people, wales, 3million, northern ireland 2million. so out of uk 53million, 10million live there. the tail should not wag the dog. if u ask me. haha.
