Treasury denies a veto to the lowering of VAT on feminine hygiene and refers to the 2023 Budgets

MADRID, 18 May. (EUROPA PRESS) -

The Minister of Finance and Public Function, María Jesús Montero, has rejected this Wednesday in the plenary session of Congress that her department "has vetoed" a reduction in VAT applied to feminine hygiene products, she has recalled that it is in the electoral program of the PSOE and has referred to the presentation of the next General State Budgets.

All this after making ugly the ERC tax spokesman, Joan Margall, during the control session to the Government, that the part of the PSOE refused to include this measure within the bill promoted by the Ministry of Equality to modify the Abortion Law and recognize the sick leave due to incapacitating menstruation, among other issues.

Shortly after, in statements to the media, Montero explained that this law "was not the place" to promote this tax reduction, stressing that "there is no discussion about the substance", but rather "it is an element of opportunity and of legal certainty.

In addition, he has said that by including this reduction in the public accounts of 2023 "it will come into force earlier", since the project promoted by Equality, he has said, for now is a preliminary project and has not even been sent to the Cortes Generales in the form of draft.
