* 1. If public spending is cut due to pressures on Governmental budgets, it is acceptable that less funding is available for the healthcare system.

* 2. The Government should consider innovative ways of generating more funding for healthcare.

* 3. Cancer is a serious economic burden and causes a strain on health system funding.

* 11. The Government should consider implementing weak hypothecation of tobacco taxes, dedicating revenue for cancer care and treatment, supporting this with other funding channels as required.

* 12. If a proportion of tobacco tax was dedicated for spending on cancer treatment, it would ensure some funding is isolated from Government budget decisions.

* 13. If tobacco tax was dedicated to spending on cancer treatment and care, and there was a large drop in the number of people who smoke tobacco, it would be acceptable that less funding is available to pay for cancer treatment and care as there would be fewer incidences of smoking-related cancer.

* 14. In relation to spending in cancer care, how do you believe funding should be prioritised between provision of new innovative treatments, and long term care?

* 15. In your professional opinion, if revenue generated from tobacco taxes was to be spent on the treatment and care of cancer patients, what benefits would you expect to see (select up to three)?
