Supermarkets 'should charge £1 a bag'
Samantha Harding, of the Campaign for the Protection of Rural England, says a fee of 5p would "seriously reduce litter and pollution... which is having a massive, massive effect".
Judith Holder, author of Grumpy Old Women, believes that a five pence fee would not work.
Her life is "full of bags", she told the Today programme, "my problem is I've never got them when I got to the till."
People need to be charged £1 for a bag so that they remember to take them in the shop, she suggests.
Do you agree? How do plastic bags affect our life?
