smoking carriage
 n.— «Ms Hewitt’s plans for licensed premises to provide “sin-bin” rooms in which employees or customers can smoke if they wish…are still on the table. Several ministers raised questions at yesterday’s meeting over how staff could be protected if they were expected to go into the rooms—also termed “cancer cabins” or “smoking carriages” in Whitehall—to clean up afterwards.» —“Tougher smoking ban is dropped for private clubs” by Philip Webster Times (London, England) Oct. 25, 2005.
