This feels like a victory for Britain's children and for everyone who has campaigned so hard for a tax on sugary sweetened drinks.

I would love the money to go to food education as well as sport but I think we have to applaud the Chancellor for taking this extremely important, bold step. I hope that this bravery will continue to form a part of this Government’s attitude to dealing with obesity and will influence the Prime Minister’s Childhood Obesity strategy later in the year.
