Cllr Iain Roberts, Lib Dem Deputy Leader at Stockport Council, has challenged Hazel Grove MP William Wragg to explain why he both voted to keep the “luxury” tax on women’s sanitary products – the so-called “tampon-tax”.
“The motion didn’t call for the tax to be scrapped, but for the Government to come up with a strategy to negotiate with the EU to scrap it.” Iain said. “In 2015 it’s baffling that tampons and other women’s sanitary products should be considered a luxury when men’s razors and children’s nappies are zero rated. I am asking William Wragg for Hazel Grove why he voted against this proposal. I think his constituents have a right to know.”3 Comments
