Dawn Butler responds to news that the government will make free sanitary products available in secondary schools

Dawn Butler MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Women and Equalities, responding to news that the government will make free sanitary products available in secondary schools, said:

“This is a victory for all those who have campaigned for an end to period poverty. I set out Labour’s support for free sanitary products in secondary schools at Labour Conference in 2017 so we’re pleased that the Government has adopted yet another Labour policy.

“It’s a disgrace that period poverty exists in the sixth richest country in the world.”
