The House of Lords is currently considering whether to entertain an appeal by smoking rebel Peter Boddington against his conviction of smoking on non-smoking trains. Boddington was convicted by magistrates in Essex in July 1995 of smoking in breach of bylaws and was fined £10. That conviction was upheld by the High Court in July last year.
