Junior Health Minister Finian McGrath has created more controversy for suggesting the smoking ban should be relaxed.

In an interview with the Sunday Business Post, the Junior Health Minister said he would like to see indoor smoking areas in pubs.

The latest eyebrow-raising statement comes after the minister defused another recent controversy, by agreeing to pay his water charges.
