Responding to the announcement that the Scottish Government will support the general principles of the Period Products (Free Provision) (Scotland) Bill, Monica Lennon MSP said:

“This is a victory for all of the campaigners and activists who have backed this legislation.

“I am very thankful to the Cabinet Secretary for listening and responding to the overwhelming public support for the Bill.

"Credit must also go to the Scottish Conservatives, Scottish Greens and Scottish Lib Dems who had already committed to back the Bill next week.

“Scotland has already taken important steps towards improving access to period products and tackling stigma.

"Legislation will guarantee rights, ensure that current initiatives continue in future on a universal basis, and will help us achieve period dignity for all.

“We have the opportunity to make a lasting difference and I hope every MSP will back the Bill at Stage 1 and continue to listen to those who would benefit from this ground-breaking legislation.”
