May be a touch controversial, but they should have to pay for them for the same reasons you have to pay for toilet paper.

It is obscene that it is taxed though (at the 5%, the minimum it can be under EU law). Cakes are VAT exempt. (Not razors though, that's a myth and they are subject to 20% vat).
It's an area with some blind spots for people. Our government are utterly tied to the EU regulations on this and we have to tax them (until the EU changes it's common market rules or we leave).

What Everton are doing here, however, is brilliant.

They have to pay for them because they are classed as a luxury item apparently, or something like that.

Simplifying this a lot as I know there are numerous reasons for having this but if men can get condoms for free, why can't women get sanitary products free?

Taken from the NHS website.

You can get free contraception and condoms from:

most GP surgeries (talk to your GP or practice nurse)

community contraceptive clinics

some genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinics

sexual health clinics (these offer contraceptive and STI testing services)

some young people's services

Free condoms have a payback to the NHS, they prevent sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies in teenagers. Tampons are an essential personal hygiene item and no woman should find herself in the situation that they can not afford to have access to them, I think it is a great thing that we are doing (no country in the world provides free tampons) but just hope that this great initiative is not abused by some who given that they are freely available in the ladies, just fill their boots with them and they disappear before kick off.

In Finland you have to show an ID card  then it would automatically be monitored to prevent abuse of the offer .

Yes but my understanding of this is that they will just be left in the ladies for women to help themselves, it would be easy for someone who might attend a match once in a blue moon to walk away with a years supply (donít ask me how many tampons that would be  ???)
