HC Deb 25 July 1973 vol 860 c1585
Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

With your permission, Mr. Speaker, I beg to present a petition on behalf of the National Consumer Protection Council, the National Assembly of Women, the Women's Labour Council, the National Union of Small Shopkeepers and the Women's International League which sheweth That sanitary protection and toilet paper have had Value Added Tax imposed upon them. Wherefore your Petitioners pray that Value Added Tax be removed and the items given a zero rating in order to bring the prices within the reach of all consumers. And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.

The petition is signed by more than 11,000 petitioners.

To lie upon the Table.
