TaxPayers’ Alliance responds to plans to scrap buy-one-get-one-free ban

For immediate release


Responding to reports that the government plans to reverse the anti-obesity strategy, John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

“Junking these nanny state policies is long overdue.

“Plans to end buy-one-get-one-free were only going to pile pressure on hard-hit households during a cost of living crisis.

“Government cannot expect taxpayers to further tighten their belts and Truss is right to row it back.”
