Cigarette smoking on Ministry worksites.

Lance-Desmond: Lavery made this Official Information request to Oranga Tamariki—Ministry for Children

The request was successful.

From: Lance-Desmond: Lavery

Dear Oranga Tamariki—Ministry for Children,

Under the legislated rule of society which is given the force of Law and is commonly referred to as the "Official Information Act 1982" I require the following information.

1. Is smoking cigarettes by Ministry employees prohibited or allowed on Ministry worksites?

2. Are Ministry employees required to wash their hands and mouths after smoking cigarettes before they engage with and have physical contact with children in the Ministry's care? In particular babies?

3. Are Ministry employees required to deodorize themselves and their clothing after smoking cigarettes before they engage with and have physical contact with children in the Ministry's care? In particular babies?

4. Are Ministry employees required to store their cigarettes and lighters in safe locations where children in the Ministry's care are incapable of accessing them?

I'm looking forward to your prompt and legally required response.

Yours faithfully,

Lance-Desmond: Lavery
