Minister Price welcomes removal of tampon tax

Federal Member for Durack and Minister for the Environment Melissa Price welcomed the removal of the GST on feminine hygiene products.

Yesterday the States and Territories unanimously agreed to remove the GST on feminine hygiene products following the Federal Government’s decision to put it on the agenda.

Minister Price said common sense had prevailed and this change is long overdue.

“We put it on the treasurers’ meeting agenda, we got the agreement and now, within three months, the GST will be removed

“Labor didn't even get around to putting it on the agenda,” she said.

“A brief public consultation will get under way to finalise the definition of these products, and confirm which products will be included.”

The GST will be removed from feminine hygiene products from January 1 next year.
