Johannesburg - Plans by the government to further restrict smoking in public places has some business owners crying foul and threatening legal action.

"This regulation must be rejected because it is not possible to implement," said Township Liquor Traders Association secretary Patric Poggenpoel.

He said his organisation had not been consulted on the rule making and asked the department of health to reconsider it.

He said if the new rule went ahead some business owners and organisations would likely challenge it in court.

The new rules would prohibit people from smoking in any public place, including restaurants, bars and shebeens.

It also prevents them from smoking within 10m of a window to a public place.
