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.”
