Review into ‘junk food’ regulation welcome step in rolling back nanny state
Len Shackleton quoted in The Telegraph
“Scrapping policies that make food and drink more expensive during a cost of living crisis is a no-brainer.
“The sugar tax has achieved nothing and the ban on volume price discounts will hurt everybody.
“We are long overdue a Prime Minister who puts the interests of consumers over the interests of nanny state pressure groups. Let us hope Liz Truss is that Prime Minister.”
