HC Deb 02 April 1963 vol 675 c27W
11. Dame Ward

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs, whether all local authorities have now removed turnstiles to lavatory accommodation; and if he will make a statement.

Sir K. Joseph

Sixty-nine authorities have refused to remove some or all of their turnstiles and have declined to reconsider their decision; 18 authorities are still undecided. I would draw attention to the notice in today's Order Paper of the introduction by my hon. Friend the Member for Belfast, West (Mrs. McLaughlin) of a Bill to require the removal of these turnstiles.
