Responding to government proposals to ban online ads for ‘junk food’ , the IEA’s Head of Lifestyle Economics Christopher Snowdon called the policy “ill-considered”.

Chris added that the ban will “cover everything from jam and yoghurt to Cornish pasties and mustard” and will be “hugely damaging to food producers, especially small businesses and start up companies, and will have no impact on obesity.”
