I agree – I wrote to Margaret Thatcher during her 'reign' to request that this be considered – thinking that she (as a female prime minister) would be more sympathetic to this assumption that sanitary towels are a luxury item.  Not so.  VAT on sanitary towels and tampons should definitely be scrapped.

I agree with the main comment.  My partner has recently started a business and the tax and PAYE systems he has had to get to grips with are complex and time consuming.  In addition the amount of VAT and corporation tax he is being asked to pay as a small limited company is ridiculous.  No incentive.

CRB checks

I agree with all postings.  The current system is ridiculous.  All CRB's should be stored on a central database and renewed every 3 years so that anyone can check if somone has one.
