I suggest the committee either read or see a synopsis of the very detailed paper prepared by Keep Wales Tidy at http://www.keepwalestidy.org/policy-and-research# which fully supports introduction of the levy. Starting at 10p would make good sense. Applying to all bags (including low cost reusable bags) seems sensible, though experience suggests paper would not be used to substitute plastic.
