TPA to campaign against Sugar Tax plans
The TaxPayers' Alliance bring their campaign against plans for a so-called "Sugar Tax" to Cardiff tomorrow (Saturday).
TaxPayers' Alliance supporters will attend the Cardiff Festival and protest against the unfair plans to introduce a tax on fizzy drinks, handing out leaflets as well as the very item the law is intended to discourage consumption of - a fizzy drink.
Full details of the "Action Day" can be found in the Notes to Editors.
Lee Canning, Taxpayers' Alliance Wales Coordinator, will say:
"As with all consumption taxes, this proposed tax would be deeply regressive and hit those on lower incomes the hardest. A sugar tax would hike the cost of living for millions of people. It would only add to the horrendous burden placed upon hard-pressed taxpayers that comes from too-high taxes on food and alcohol.
"Politicians have to resist the urge to use taxpayers as nothing more than a cash cow prime to be milked."
