Mr. Speaker, excise duties on alcohol and tobacco will be increased as follows: a 750ml bottle of wine will have an excise duty of Ksh.136 which is Ksh.18 more from the current rate; the duty of a bottle of whisky will go up by Ksh.24 to Ksh.182 for a 750ml bottle. The excise duty on a packet of 20 cigarettes will increase by Ksh.8 to Ksh.61 per packet.
