Voxpop: Sugar tax on fizzy drinks

Jamie Oliver’s proposed sugar tax for fizzy drinks has stirred up much debate, as the government rejected the idea.

Having gained over 147,000 signatures for his petition, Jamie continues his campaign against sugar.

The manager, Aly Attya, of Cardiff’s Jamie’s Italian Restaurant, is in support of the sugar tax as he said, “For me, it’s a good idea… because there’s been a hundred issues and operations every week in the UK regarding diabetes.”

Aly also conceded that the sugar tax implemented in Jamie’s restaurants is failing to deter customers.

We decided to investigate further by interviewing people on the streets of Cardiff regarding the sugar tax issue.
