Remove VAT from ladies sanitary products/incontinence products

Comment 5th July 2010

VAT is meant to be for luxury items. I do not pay VAT on food as food is considered to be essential but many food items are not essential.

Sanitary towels and tampons are an essential product for ladies that have to be purchased on a regular basis throughout the year.

Also products designed for bladder incontinence are essential and as such should not be applicable for VAT.

Why does this matter?

This idea is important because children as young as 9 or 10 are having periods and families with female children will be spending a lot of money on these products.

Also OAP's and disabled people have to spend large amounts of money on incontinence products like tena lady pads etc which is not fair.
