Smoking, or no? The law insists we spell out the obvious

We're a non-smoking hotel, and our headquarters / second training centre is non smoking too. There's never been any change in that status, there's never been an issue with people who don't realise, and there's only been one occasion that I'm aware of that guests have smoked in their rooms.

And we don't have any no-smoking signs up - not even discreet ones. No need. A lack of ash trays, a sweet smell, computer equipment all around, and light carperts and deor that's not tar-stained give the direction and lead. So why is the "Nanny State" insisting, under penalty of large fines, that we MUST display no smoking signs at the entrance after 1st July - the date after which smoking is banned in all such public places as ours with minimal exceptions?

We WILL put up those signs to conform to the law. But, frankly, we don't expect they will change our staff or guests attitude / behaviour in any way what so ever; if they can (and do) obey a smoking ban that we impose, why on earth would they even think of flouting it once it gets the weight of law behind it, and why on earth do they need extra reminders?
