answer text <p>There has been a long term reduction in annual tobacco duty receipts, driven by above-RPI increases in duty and changing attitudes to smoking. 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

answer text <p>We reached a fair financial settlement with the EU, honouring commitments we made during our period of membership, as set out in the draft Withdrawal Agreement in November 2018. As the Prime Minister said in her statement to Parliament, we do not want to see Article 50 extended. By far the best way forward is for Parliament to agree to leave with a deal when we bring the Meaningful Vote back. If Article 50 were to be extended, any adjustments to the financial settlement would be subject to future negotiations.</p> more like this
