    VM418 – Bus Stop Cigarette Receptacle Motion 2016, Jammy Duel MP
    This House believes that there should be some form of bin and/or cigarette receptacle at all bus stops.

    This House further believes that as a bare minimum a cigarette receptacle should be present at all bus shelters in urban areas.

    The rationale is simple enough, it gives smokers somewhere other than the floor to put their cigarette butts. Such action is not unprecedented, in many places there are places for people to put their gum attached to lamp posts and with the sparsity of bins in urban areas this simple measure can lead to a cleaner, healthier environment.

    What sparsity of bins? I keep walking into the damn things!

    Either way it seems reasonable

    Because litter pickers don't need paying, right?

    Some bus shelters come under the smoking ban, so to have cigarette receptacles at all bus stops would flaunt the law. Having discovered this I must vote against.

    A bit pointless if you can't smoke at some shelters. I like the idea of more bins to prevent waste however, but even in places where there are plenty of bins such as parks or roads, I often see littered rubbish regardless. Always made me chuckle in Central London to find roads lined with Mcdonald's packaging and such.

    Despite there being ample bins nearby.

    I didn't realise that there were half male radius exclusion zones all over the country.

    Abstain. I might have supported this but I can't without knowing how much this would cost.

    Sentence makes no sense.

    Edit:

    Also there are no numbers provided at all in the proposal.

    Would've supported with the comparative data I mentioned. As it is, abstain.

    Are you offering legislation to crack down on bin thieves?

    That's odd, we seem to be sprouting bins
