The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Boris Johnson comes out against new “sin taxes” proposed by healthy eating tsar” – below is their description.
Boris Johnson has opposed the new taxes on sugar and salt being proposed by the Government’s food tsar, amid warnings the move could add £170 a year to the average family’s shopping basket.
The Prime Minister was asked about the food strategy published today and said there are good ideas in it “but I am not attracted to the idea of extra taxes on hard-working people”.
However, Henry Dimbleby, the food entrepreneur behind the Government-commissioned report, told BBC Breakfast that most products could simply reduce sugar content, rather than prices being increased.
