The boss of bakery chain Greggs stepped up his fight against the "completely confusing" pasty tax today on the eve of a showdown with the Treasury.


Greggs chief executive Ken McMeikan said customers have given "universal support" to the group's campaign against Government plans to extend the 20% VAT tax to its hot takeaway food - including pasties and sausage rolls.
