Tackling Period Poverty

Brilliant that Scotland will lead the way in tackling ‘Period Poverty’ after the Scottish Government have launched a pilot project in Aberdeen, which will mean at least 1,000 women and girls from low-income households will receive free feminine sanitary products.

This pilot will help to inform how we can make feminine sanitary products freely available to low-income groups.

In Westminster, I’ll be working with our team of SNP MPs to hold the UK Government to their commitment to remove VAT from sanitary products.
