HC Deb 13 February 1986 vol 91 cc546-7W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate he has of the effect on the revenue of increasing the tax upon cigarettes by 6p, 13p and 20p per 20 cigarettes, respectively.

Mr. Brooke

Te estimated net additional revenue, at 1986–87 prices, would be:

Increase in price of 20 cigarettes (pence) Full year revenue yield (£ million)
6 190
13 405
20 610

The larger the price increase, the greater the degree of uncertainty to which the estimates are subject.
