Theresa May urged to drop sugar tax from next week's Finance Bill

People against Sugar Tax has urged the Prime Minister to drop the sugar tax from the Finance Bill when it's debated in Parliament next week.

Despite a lack of evidence supporting the tax, and sugary drink consumption falling in recent years, the proposal is still included in the bill.

The government has many important issues to deal with over the next five years. A silly sugar tax isn't one of them. We call on Theresa May to drop the sugar tax from the Finance Bill.

No-one will miss the sugar tax if it's dropped from the Bill. Come on Theresa, you can do it!
