I AM outraged at reading that small business is always to bear the brunt of all problems (New rules chime the end for ice-cream vans outside schools, Gazette, March 17).
Kathy Sparks must also have received complaints from health organisations and residents with regard to healthy eating against the big retailers in the country.
Why hasn't she taken any action against them?
I feel that McDonald's on its own sells more ice-cream to children than the ice-cream vans, who are only out and about for a few months of the year.
The five big retailers in the UK are probably the biggest culprits, pumping unhealthy foods for the consumption of children.
Why hasn't the council done anything to stop them?
I strongly feel that small business has been the victim in all cases related to children, with the real culprits getting away with it.
