MP Shabana Mahmood is leading a round-table discussion in early March to help tackle problems relating to shisha bars. Shisha bars are on the up in Birmingham. From 3 in 2007 to 35 in 2016 – that’s over a ten fold increase in less than 10 years. However unlike night clubs, no single agency or statutory legislation regulates shisha activities. They can only be regulated by using rules created to deal with other problems like anti-smoke legislation.
