General Scheme of the Public Health (Tobacco and Nicotine Inhaling Products) Bill 2019: Department of Health
Yes. The figure I provided related to the increase in the sale of tobacco products from 1 January 2020 to 31 December 2020. I do not have the exact figure here, but there was an increase in sales of over 150 million. It is being put down to the fact that people were not able to travel, therefore, less product was bring brought into the country by individuals.
