Taxation: Food

Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 13 May 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what recent representations he has received on using taxation policy to (a) encourage healthy eating and (b) influence diets; and if he will make a statement. (204726)

Treasury Ministers and officials receive representations from a wide range of organisations and individuals in the public and private sectors as part of the process of policy development and delivery. As was the case with previous Administrations, it is not the Government's practice to provide details of all such representations.
