On Wednesday 11th March, Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak delivered his first budget to the House of Commons. During his speech, Sunak announced that the Tampon Tax will be abolished in January 2021.
This comes after years of campaigning, most notably by Laura Coryton, publisher of the petition “Stop Taxing Periods. Period.” on Change.org in 2015. I spoke to Coryton about her thoughts and feelings about the abolition.
