A sugar tax has been levied on makers of sugary soft drinks, and become widely known as the “sugar tax.”
The Government announced that it "is not prepared to look back at its time in parliament, doing this job and say to our children's generation, 'I'm sorry, we knew there was a problem with sugary drinks, and we knew it caused disease, but we dumped the difficult decisions and did nothing'."
The money raised by the new tax will be used to improve sports in schools. The tax will apply to all producers and importers of soft drinks that contain added sugar.
