Tax on cigarettes etc

It is estimated that €500m is being lost in revenue due to sale of legal and illegal cigarettes. I am not surprised at ASH continuing to advocate an increase of €2 on a pack despite my having made them aware of the “law of diminishing returns”. I am surprised at Jim Power agreeing with this stupidity. I have purchased almost all my cigarettes abroad for the past ten years. I am paying €2.30 per pack in Spain. I get flights, accomodation and car for less than€100. I save €3500 approx pa. It does not take a financial wizard to add.
