In previous questions from the noble Lord regarding the visitor’s toilets in Sanctuary Buildings, he has been advised that the department is undertaking maintenance works within the building. A large part of these works is to address longstanding issues with the building water and drainage systems and to ensure our wash facilities remain at the required standard for a government building. Whilst we haven’t finalised the design of the facilities in the visitor area, it is anticipated that individual and disabled toilets will be installed.
