I am advised by Revenue that a Ready Reckoner is available on the Revenue Statistics webpage at www.revenue.ie/en/corporate/information-about-revenue/statistics/ready-reckoner/index.aspx. This Ready Reckoner shows a wide range of detailed information, including estimates for the yield from changes in duties on tobacco (page 22). These estimates assume pro-rata increases in other tobacco products.
