Rates legislation stalls!

Rates legislation has stalled again in the UK. Public toilets must be taken seriously by politicians and treated as essential infrastructure in towns and cities, campaigners have said.

New rates legislation to help save loos in England and Wales from closure by scrapping business rates stalled when Parliament was suspended.

The British Toilet Association said public facilities were a “human right” and urgent action was needed.

The UK government said it hoped to reintroduce the law when MPs return – but we are yet to see any evidence of this.
