Responding to the report from the Health Committee, which calls for the introduction of a sugar tax, Jonathan Isaby, Chief Executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:
"A sugar tax would be deeply regressive, hitting the poorest hardest and putting even greater pressure on family budgets. Politicians and the self-appointed High Priests of the Nanny State in the public health lobby should stop seeing tax hikes as a silver bullet, and instead encourage much more personal responsibility. We must also let the numerous and costly taxpayer-funded education campaigns take hold, instead of considering ever more ways to hike the cost of living."
