There are 57 male toilets in the Palace of Westminster. Currently only one male toilet - in the House of Lords ground floor cloakroom - has a disposal bin; however the bins are generally only provided if requested. We have not to date received any requests for bins of the sort specified, but would be happy to respond if made aware of any demand.
