There should be a new tax levied onto all foodstuffs imported into the country, designed to be high enough to force the price to be increased in supermarkets and shops.

In conjunction, this could fund a tax break for all locally produced foods, making these foods cheaper to produce, stimulating local economies and farms and reducing the pollution caused by the massive container ships delivering food to this country that we can quite happily produce ourselves if we had the right incentive to do so.

This tax could also fund important technologies such as large greenhouse networks, producing fresh fruits that might not ordinarily be produced in the UK.

Why is this idea important?

This idea would help achieve the following:

1, Reduce pollution in our seas as we would need less imported food and so less container ships.

2, Improve local economies, providing temporary student jobs (picking etc.) and support local farms and food manufacturers.
