‘Hot air’ Tories abandon commitment to latte levy 

LatteLeader of Ribble Valley Liberal Democrats Cllr. Allan Knox has slammed the Chancellors decision to drop the “Latte Levy” by refusing to tax single-use plastic cups

Cllr. Knox said: “It is bitterly disappointing that the Chancellor has abandoned the Government’s commitment to introduce a levy on plastic cups.

“It proves the Tories are full of hot air and no credible action. It also proves what I have said all along, that headlines are more important to them than the environment.

“Our Environment deserves better. Liberal Democrats will continue to fight for a ban all single-use plastic within three years, the introduction of a levy on all producers and retailers that produce or use single-use plastics and the introduction of a latte levy.“
