Labour Party publishes approach to public health:

The 29 page document, ‘Protecting children – empowering all’ outlines Labour's approach to food and diet, alcohol, smoking and exercise. Proposals include setting maximum fat, salt and sugar levels for foods targeted at children (cereals, crisps, soft drinks), and pushing for mandatory traffic light signposting in Brussels. On alcohol there is a wish to ban high strength low price ciders, restrict sports sponsorship and to ingrain public health as a licensing condition. There is also a commitment to reverse machinery of Government changes that led to transfer of nutrition and food labelling responsibility from FSA.
