dutyfree-at-ben-gurionThe Financial Secretary, in his 2010-2011 Budget, proposed to abolish duty-free concessions on tobacco products for incoming passengers to Hong Kong as a means to further protect public health. To implement the budget proposal, the Dutiable Commodities (Exempted Quantities) (Amendment) Notice 2010 was introduced. A LegCo subcommittee was formed to scrutinize the Notice and it is now inviting public to submit opinions on this Notice by 4 May 2010.

The  letters below are statements of our support to the proposal which is being prepared by COSH for submission to the subcommittee.
