The Australian Greens are disappointed that both the old parties are giving up on ending the tampon tax.
Senator Larissa Waters, Australian Greens Deputy Leader and spokesperson for women, said:
"While the old parties make excuses, Australian women continue to fork out $50 million a year in a tax on their bodies.
"We Greens will not give up on ending the tampon tax - we'll continue to work in the next Parliament to see it scrapped.
"It's discriminatory to exempt condoms or sunscreen from GST but charge women GST for essential items.
