Do you think shoppers should be charged 5p for a bag?

Monday October 5 2015

FROM today, shoppers at all big stores will be forced to pay 5p for every plastic bag provided at the tills.

Only retailers that employ more than 250 full-time workers will begin charging their customers, with smaller shops exempt from the government policy.

Some people believe the charges are too complicated, and could lead to longer queues.

WABers what do you think?

I don't mind paying a small charge if the bags are strong enough to last longer than just one shop.
Glad to hear the charge of the bags will go towards funds for charities.
