Scotland's other national drink, IRN-BRU, is headquartered and housed in Cumbernauld in my constituency. It provides hundreds of good local jobs, but the company tells me that it is being affected deleteriously by the substantial increase in the price of sugar over time. May we have a debate on the impact of rising commodity prices on British consumers and British industry more widely?

I'm not sure whether we should be promoting sugary fizzy drinks anyway - let them drink Diet Irn Bru and save the NHS a fortune on dentistry and obesity.
