At last. Charges apply from now, 3 cents per bag, and will rise to 7 cents in 2019

Yes, good news. I brought out all my hessian bags for life with me; they seem to last forever!

For some odd reason, market stalls and kiosks are exempt from making the charge! Good news, nonetheless. Bob.

It's OK don't worry, my wife being the sort of person who makes plans (I swear if she lived in America she would be a "prepper") now has enough plastic bags for all of us, since the news came out some time back she decided to take action :roll:
