John Lewis joins M&S and Tesco in cutting price of period pants
John Lewis and Waitrose are joining Tesco and Marks & Spencer in cutting the price of their period pants. John Lewis said it was "The right thing to do" and was aimed at providing "a much-needed boost for customers looking for ways to save on essential sanitary products". Some 70 signatories have signed a letter asking the minister in charge of VAT policy, Victoria Atkin, to reclassify the pants as a period product. The government has also rolled out free sanitary products in schools, colleges and hospitals to "Continue our fight to end period poverty", the spokesperson added. The NHS offers free period products to hospital patients.
