To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to reconsider their decision that the communal lavatories in the visitors’ section of Sanctuary Buildings are not for women only.

In previous questions from the noble Lord regarding the visitor’s toilets in Sanctuary Buildings, he has been advised that the department is undertaking maintenance works within the building. A large part of these works is to address longstanding issues with the building water and drainage systems and to ensure our wash facilities remain at the required standard for a government building. Whilst we haven’t finalised the design of the facilities in the visitor area, it is anticipated that individual and disabled toilets will be installed.
