As shown in the published Tobacco Bulletin July 2018.</p><p> </p><p>In their November 2016 Economic and fiscal outlook the Office of Budget Responsibility revised their estimates of the underlying downward trend in clearances of tobacco. This was to account for various factors including weakness in tobacco receipts and the expected effects of the Tobacco Products Directive. Paragraph 4.75 noted that the effect on receipts from the introduction of standardised tobacco packaging is assumed to be captured by this downward trend in clearances across the forecast period.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has recently reported that almost 40% of Low Income Countries (LICs) now face significant debt-related challenges, up from 21% in 2013. The Government recognises that rising sovereign debt levels have led to increased debt vulnerabilities in many LICs.</p><p>Though the Government has not made its own assessment of the effect of high debt levels on the sovereignty and independence of states, high levels of debt can leave countries exposed to adverse exogenous shocks, like fluctuating commodity prices. Given the complex international nature of LIC sovereign debt, we continue to believe that internationally-agreed assessments and coordinated approaches to tackle debt vulnerability are most effective. The UK will continue to work through fora such as the IMF, World Bank, G20, and the Paris Club to promote LIC debt sustainability.</p> more like this
