This year’s HealthWatch debate has seized another hot topic and some brilliant speakers.

This year we’re delighted to welcome back our patron the evidence-based comedian Robin Ince as chairman while our four distinguished experts debate the motion “This house believes sugar is harmful so all sugary foods should be taxed, not just soft drinks”. Audience members will be asked to vote on the proposition both before and after the debate.
