Labour MPs have given a mixed reception to the government's plan, put forward by Nick Clegg, to introduce a 5p charge for supermarket plastic bags.
Lib Dems talking about plastic bag tax. If you shop at Lidl, you already pay 6p and 3p for them. Not that @nick_clegg would know that.
Amazing news as Lib-Dem Conference opens a 5p tax on plastic bags from 2015 no one will now remember all the broken pledges @bbcr4today
Please note: Wales already has a 5p charge for carrier bags. Labour Welsh Government policy. Great success in cutting plastic bags.
