A CALL for a Government tax on plastic bags was condemned by Tories in Huddersfield.
They went on the attack at a Kirklees Council meeting over the proposal by Liberal Democrats.
Tory group leader Clr Robert Light said it would simply be an additional tax burden that would benefit no-one.
Clr Light said: "The Liberal Democrats keep coming out with these absurd policies and wasting council time.
"They are doing a fantastic impersonation of the taxation mad Government."
