In the US, the tax might result in people eating three fewer portions of red, processed meat each week. Beef, lamb and pork all fall into this category, though depending on how it has been preserved, such meats may ultimately be classified as processed.
Meat Promotion Wales' meat advisory panel said that the tax, proposed in a research document by scientists at the University of Oxford, was ill advised and potentially ignored the main health benefits of eating meat.
"Optimal" meat taxes were significantly higher in other countries than in the United Kingdom, according to the research.

But whether it means consumers buy less sugary drinks remains to be seen.
What kind of research was this?
And making sure the health costs of foods are reflected in their prices is an important component of that.
Modelling studies can estimate the potential outcome of a particular policy, but they rely on many assumptions that may not prove to be accurate in real life.
By 2020, consumption of red and processed meat was likely to cause 2.4 million deaths per year and cost the global economy 285 billion U.S. dollars (£219 billion), the study found. "However, our findings make it clear that the consumption of red and processed meat has a cost, not just to people's health and to the planet, but also to the healthcare systems and the economy".
Each of these calculations was based on information from a variety of datasets.
"A health levy on red and processed meat would not limit choices, but send a powerful signal to consumers and take pressure off our healthcare systems", said Dr Springmann.
The team has speculated that meat taxes could bring down processed meat consumption by about two portions per week in the high-income nations. That reduced consumption would result in about 53,000 fewer deaths each year and save around $20 billion in health care costs. Governments don't need to tell people what they can and can't eat, but they have a responsibility to encourage the adoption of healthy and sustainable diets.
