A tax on sugar has been suggested
Is it a good idea?
Cele Bailey, Airlie Beach: People have too much sugar these days. It’s a good thing.
Glenn Clarke, Proserpine: It’s bloody ridiculous. There is a whole range of food that contributes to obesity. Rex Taylor, Conway: It’s a good thing. It won’t make that much difference (to obesity) but it all helps.
Dennis Ludwid, Proserpine: No, everything is taxed enough in Australia as it is.
Bernadette Rewald, Marion: It’s a bad thing. I don’t want to pay more.
Rod Coldrey, Moranbah: It’s no good. Everyone loves sugar on their Weeties.
Wendy Walker, Cannonvale: I think it’s a good idea if people are going to be a burden on the health system.
