Budget 2011: £7 pack of cigarettes
James Hall and Harry Wallop
"From 6pm on Wednesday, duty on tobacco rose by 2pc above inflation. On top of this, a wider restructuring of duty added 50p to the price of a packet of economy cigarettes and 33p to premium cigarettes, meaning that poorer smokers will be disproportionately affected.
"A pack of Windsor cigarettes, for instance, currently priced at about £5.13 will now cost £5.63, with 88 per cent of its retail price going to the Treasury in either VAT or duty.
"A pack of premium cigarettes, such as Silk Cut or Benson & Hedges, will increase from £6.62 to £6.95."
