A sugar tax will be imposed on soft drink producers in two bands according to the level of sugar content from April 2018.  It will not be imposed on milk based drinks or fruit juices.

The £520 million raised each year will be used to offer more sports activities in both primary and secondary schools and expanding breakfast clubs in up to 1,600 schools from September 2017.
