I see that Breckland Council in Norfolk intends to introduce a rule making council staff, who pop out for a fag break, clock off and on during these fag breaks.
Time measured as lost because of fag breaks will have to be made up by the smokers.
Fair enough, maybe. However, here are a few small points:
1 It does not appear that the same clocking off/on rule will be applied to those who go to the toilet, chat round the water cooler or who have tea/coffee breaks.
2 Given the "productivity" of office bound council bureaucrats, will it make a cat's chances in hell of a difference to the quality of work performed that will actually positively impact the local taxpayers?
3 Is it possible that the costs might actually outweigh the benefits?
