S5O-01567: Monica Lennon (Central Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 29 November 2017

To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on what consideration it is giving to the provision of universal free access to sanitary products.

Answered by: Angela Constance 6 December 2017

Our immediate priority is to focus on delivery of our Programme for Government commitment to provide access to free sanitary products in schools, colleges and universities, and we will consider further action in light of the findings of our Aberdeen pilot which will conclude in March next year.

This is a ground-breaking commitment to tackle this gender injustice and we are proud to be the first nation in the world to take this action.
