Apparently Superdrug is 'confident' that VAT on contraceptives (aka condoms) is to be reduced from 17.5 to 5 per cent in the forthcoming budget. Also affected may be 'morning-after' pills. This seems like a good move to me:
- it may encourage more people to be safe(r) when having sex, whatever their circumstances;
- it will make 'making whoopee!' a little cheaper.
Expect some negative comments, though, from the Roman Catholic church condemning this lurch toward 'encouraging promiscuity', or some such nonsense.
