Lib Dems call for ‘public toilet fund’ as numbers ‘drop by 14% in five years’

T

he Lib Dems are rallying for the establishment of a dedicated “public toilet fund” in the wake of a decline in the number of public toilet facilities across England.

Freedom of information requests by the party show the number of public toilets has fallen from 531 to 459 in 45 councils since 2018/2019, meaning there has been a 14% drop in five years.
