Intelligent Tax Cuts

Of course, don't mind them, they're British.

"It comes after 69 MPs signed an Early Day Motion in support of a campaign to cut tax on condoms and contraceptives.

"Jan Barlow, chief executive of Brook - the sexual health charity for young people, welcomed the announcement saying condoms and other forms of contraception are a necessity, not a luxury.

""Cutting VAT will not only benefit the people left with some extra change in their pockets, it will also help services such as Brook's which buy contraception in bulk to give away to young people who can't afford to pay for it.

""This move is a valuable contribution towards improving Britain's sexual health.""
