Give up the money

JOHN Smithee is right to question the wisdom of FDC proposals to close some public toilets.

However, his solution of charging brings its own problems - most toilets where a charge is made also have an attendant so who pays for that? If the cost were reflected in the charge it would have to be astronomic.

Claustrophobic and unpopular ‘Superloos’ don’t need an attendant.

I have long argued that the provision and maintenance of toilet facilities should be a matter for individual town councils because needs vary from one town.

FDC should be made to surrender their budget to the town councils.
