Lord Laird

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How much money was raised in the last financial year from tobacco-related taxes. [HL3171]

Lord McIntosh of Haringey

Excise duty receipts on tobacco products for the financial year 1999–2000 can be found in Table 2.1D of the national statistics publicationFinancial Statistics. The amount of VAT raised on tobacco can be estimated from the amount of household expenditure on tobacco. This is shown in Table 4.1 of Consumer Trends, published by the Office for National Statistics.
