I presume this is the survey he is talking about: https://home.kpmg.com/content/dam/kpmg/uk/pdf/2017/04/Australia-illict-tobacco-Report-2016.pdf

It’s key points are that Legal and illicit tobacco consumption in Australia decline between 2015 and 2016, contraband volumes decreased over the past year, and that counterfeit remains a very small share of illicit tobacco consumption.

I don’t care where this guy gets his funding from, but he is not accurate on evidence.
