Junk food: Should multi-buy deals be banned?

Members of the public are split on whether the government should ban multi-buy deals for junk food and pre-watershed TV advertising.

The Department of Health has said the plans will be deferred for a year while officials assess the impact on household finances as families struggle with the increasing cost of living.
