25 September 2019

The Senior Deputy Speaker has asked me, as Chairman of the Services Committee, to respond on his behalf.

Clinical waste bins (which are suitable for the disposal of continence products) are currently provided in all accessible toilets in the House of Lords (Palace of Westminster, Millbank House and Old Palace Yard) where space provides, with an additional one situated in the male Peers’ shower / toilet room on the Ground Floor West Front.

Separately, feminine hygiene bins are provided in all female, accessible and unisex toilets in the House of Lords.
