Responding to news that ministers may be considering a sugar tax, Jonathan Isaby, Chief Executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:
"A sugar tax would be deeply regressive and hit those on lower incomes the hardest. Rather than capitulate to the self-appointed High Priests of the Nanny State in the public health lobby, the Government should encourage personal responsibility and let the numerous expensive programmes they have put in place around education and information bed in. Changes to Britain's diets will happen via a long-term cultural shift, not by hiking the cost of living for the poorest families."
