Yesterday in the house of commons, ministers sought to fend off moves requiring local authorities to set out strategies for providing public toilets. A crossbench group of MPs, led by the chair of the communities and local government select committee, Dr Phyllis Starkey, wants to force councils to come up with plans for providing toilet facilities after consulting with residents
Dr Starkey has been heading up the The Select Committee for Communities and Local Government, looking into the provision of public toilets within Britain. Dr Starkey asserts that "Public toilets have been provided in Britain since the 1850’s, but their number has declined in recent years and there is general concern about their safety, cleanliness and accessibility".
Toilet turnstile offer the ideal antedote to providing public toilet facilities enabling security and the income to afford to upkeep hygiene and cleanliness standards within the toilets.
