    yes it's true !



    Cross-Channel shoppers are to be allowed to bring more cheap cigarettes into the country.

    Economic Secretary John Healey, the minister responsible for Customs and Excise, said the "indicative levels" for travellers bringing cigarettes into the country for their own use are to be raised from 800 to 3,200 per person.

    The move, announced in a Commons written answer, follows recent criticism of the Customs' tactics in clamping down on travellers suspected of trying to evade tobacco duty by bringing in cigarettes to sell on the black market.

    Mr Healey also said new regulations would abolish the burden of proof on individuals to show that that goods brought in were for their personal use and require Customs to show that they were intended to be sold.

    The Treasury, in conjunction with the Lord Chancellor's Department, is also to review the current appeals procedure, aimed at simplifying the current system.

    At the same time, Mr Healey announced a further crackdown on large-scale and repeat offenders. "The measures I am announcing today will help make the distinction between smugglers and honest shoppers even clearer," he said.

    "The measures make clear that Customs activity is legal and fair but tough on those who attempt to smuggle."

    Treasury officials denied that the measures were in response to recent criticisms of Customs' tactics, insisting they were part of a long-term strategy, but acknowledged that they would make the system more "proportionate".

    This is something that’s confusing me... I was under the impression you can bring as much as you like back.. but this 800 fags was a guide line for the officers .. ?

    Last time I went to France I came back with 5 boxes of 800 as a foot passenger .... go figure ??? of course for my own personal use
