Free Provision Of Sanitary Products For Girls From Low-Income Families

EDM number 325 in 2017-19, proposed by Layla Moran on 14/09/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Incomes and poverty and Schools.

That this House is deeply concerned that girls in the UK are missing time in school because of a lack of access to sanitary products; recognises the unaffordable cost of sanitary products for some low-income individuals and families; notes that this is a hidden problem that some girls may find difficult to discuss, and as such the number of girls affected is likely to be higher than any estimates available; applauds the brilliant work of charities and organisations alike who have been trying to address the issue through charitable donations and distribution of sanitary products; and calls on the Government to take immediate action to ensure that girls are not prevented from going to school because they do not have access to sanitary products, including the provision of free sanitary products in schools for those girls needing them.

This motion has been signed by a total of 28 MPs.
