Make sanitary products VAT-free
The Welsh Government has banned the sale of non-essential items in supermarkets during a 17-day lockdown.
Health Minister Vaughan Gething has said that Tesco was "simply wrong" to tell a woman she could not buy period products during the welsh lockdown.
Tampons, sanitary pads, and menstrual cups are currently categorised as "non-essential, luxury goods" and have 5 percent VAT (value-added tax) added to their price.
They’re either essential (in which case we should stop paying VAT on them) or they’re not (they are).
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
