FDF Director General talks about sugar tax
Speaking in response to the Health Select Committee's Report on childhood
obesity, published today, FDF Director General Ian Wright CBE, said:
“It's disappointing that the Committee has missed its chance to add a robustly
independent voice to the obesity debate.
“The Committee has swallowed whole the agenda of the pressure group Action on
Sugar. Their Report also simply endorses and reproduces at great length the
recommendations already made by Public Health England. This despite the fact that, as
the Report itself noted, the Committee did not subject PHE's Report to any
scrutiny or questioning.
