Iain Roberts has challenged Cheadle MP Mary Robinson and Hazel Grove MP William Wragg to explain why they 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 children’s nappies are zero rated. I am asking Mary Robinson, Cheadle’s Conservative MP, and William Wragg for Hazel Grove why they voted against this proposal, as I think their constituents have a right to know.”13 Comments
