香烟的危害性是没有鸦片那么大，那么立竿见影的。就如医学说 性事过频 会损害健康，难道要禁欲吗？
Tobacco Excise Duties
E.9. Duties on cigarettes and manufactured tobacco products have remained constant since 2005. In the meantime, smoking prevalence has increased, especially amongst youths aged 18 to 29. To discourage this trend, I will raise the excise duties for cigarettes and manufactured tobacco products by 10%. (Refer to Annex A-5.)
E.10. This is expected to yield additional revenue of about $70 million a year.
Liquor Excise Duties
E.11. The last effective increase in liquor duties was made 10 years ago, in 2004, when we rationalised our liquor duties to bring them in line with our international obligations. We will now raise the excise duty rate of all liquor types by 25% to keep pace with inflation. (Refer to Annex A-5.)
E.12. These changes will take effect today and result in a revenue gain of about $120 million a year.
E.13. I will raise the betting duty rates on lotteries from 25% to 30% of gross bets, from 1 July 2014. The rate increase affects Singapore Pools. Private clubs are not affected as they pay different duties on their jackpot machine takings.
E.14. The Tote Board will have adequate resources to continue its donation activities.
E.15. The additional duties will increase Government revenues by $255 million a year.
E.16. The other tax changes are reflected in the Annex. (Refer to Annex A-5.)
