Clare Murphy, Director of External Affairs at bpas, said:
"We really welcome this apology from Boots and are delighted that they are committed to lowering the cost of emergency contraception. We look forward to learning what the next steps will be and the timeframe for these changes. As other retailers have been able to introduce a price reduction across their stores we hope Boots will act promptly to ensure women have affordable access to this back-up method of contraception, which gives women a crucial second chance of avoiding an unwanted pregnancy."
