TOYLTime Week #10


It is a fantastic triumph for Scotland that they are the first country in the world to offer free period products for anyone in need.  This isn’t a means-tested thing, they are just going to be available in public building toilets and at collection points for women to pick up.

Now there are around 2.8 million females in Scotland and around 34.5million in England.   Scotland has put aside £8 million for this so England would have to put aside around £98 million (bear with, this is a back-of-the-envelope job) which is a lot of money.

However, there are more of us paying taxes so surely we could find it given some of the not so sensible things the Government spends money on?  Oxford City Council now provides them free without having to prove financial need already
