Wales must avoid a bog standard level of public toilet provision says Randerson

2009 Hydref 21 4:31 PM

Welsh Lib Dem Assembly Member for Cardiff Central, JennyRanderson Has today urged the Assembly Government to not allow the public spendingsqueeze that Wales is facing to result in even worse provision of publictoilets across Wales.

Speaking after she challenged the Minister for Social Justice andLocal Government on the issue, Jenny Randerson said:"While they may seem like a soft target for public spending cuts, decent and available public toilets are essential. "Good public toilets have a significant effect on tourism, on good health and safety, and on avoiding crime and anti social behaviour. "There has been a big decline in numbers of public toilets and their opening hours in recent years and we should be trying to improve the situation, not allowing it to get worse" "It would be a great shame if the coming years saw even further deterioration in the quality and availability of public toilets in communities across Wales.
