Nor do I care that Anna Soubry, the Conservative MP for Broxtowe (where the Boots headquarters is located), will be "writing to the company asking it to make clear its reasons for not reducing prices". Erm, none of your business. Why does a private company have to justify its pricing structure to anyone?
But I will point out this:
- Cost of the pill at Boots- £28.25 for Levonelle (leading brand) and £26.75 for its own generic version
- Cost of the pill at Tesco-£13.50 for Levonelle
- Cost of the pill at Superdrug- £13.49
- Cost of the pill in France- £5.50
