star this property answer text <p>HM Revenue and Customs’ (HMRC’s) consultation ‘Tobacco Illicit Trade Protocol – licensing of equipment and the supply chain’ sought views on two aspects of the Protocol. These were the mandatory licensing of tobacco manufacturing machinery and the potential licensing of participants in the supply chain of tobacco products for the purposes of tackling the illict trade.</p><p> </p><p>A response document on the licensing of tobacco manufacturing machinery was published on 5 December 2016 and draft legislation was published at the same time.</p><p> </p><p>Licensing of the supply chain is more complex and could affect a large number of UK businesses. Therefore, while HMRC is in a position to proceed to implementation of the licensing of machinery, supply chain licensing requires further consideration. A response document covering this aspect of the consultation will be published later in the year.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Countries use different ways to assess smoking prevalence within their population and there is variation as to whether they include daily, weekly, or occasional smokers within the figures. It is therefore not always possible to compare smoking prevalence rates directly between countries. In contrast, Joossens and Raws’s Tobacco Control Scale in Europe, which ranks the United Kingdom as number one in tobacco control activity of 34 European countries, uses a set criteria to assess the implementation of tobacco control policies across European countries, enabling a direct comparison to be made between the countries of tobacco control measures.</p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this

A copy of the report is attached. The Audit report covered all regulations for which the Department has responsibility believed to have a potential cost to business, including those relating to tobacco control.</p><p> </p><p>Costs and benefits were estimated where possible using standard government methodology and the impacts to society were estimated based on economic costs and benefits. As advised in the report, there is a robust cost-benefit case for the tobacco control regulations considered and experience shows that initiatives to reduce smoking prevalence work best in combination, with cumulative effects over time.</p><p> </p> more like this
