Should there be a sugar tax?
With Parliament meeting today to debate the 20% sugar tax proposed by Jamie Oliver's campaign, we're asking whether or not this will work. Is this a nanny state move, should there be a tax on high sugar products or should labelling be clearer with teaspoons instead of grams so we can make our own informed decisions?
We're joined by paediatric nutritionist Jennifer Rosborough from Action On Sugar and Dr Uchenna Okoye, a dentist who says the rise in children being treated for sugar related dental work is shocking. However, strongly opposed to the sugar tax is the Daily Mail's Andrew Pierce, who thinks this is a typical example of 'nanny state junk'.
