Plan for removing business rates from public toilets fails

16 September 2019

A new law removing business rates from public toilets is among a number of Parliamentary Bills which have fallen due to the recent prorogation of Parliament. The Non-Domestic Rating Public Lavatories Bill would have removed business rates for buildings hosting public toilets effectively making the facilities cheaper to run, stopping future closures and ultimately increasing their numbers.

This is in fact the second time that this proposal has been impacted by an unexpected prorogation of Parliament as an earlier Bill also fell due to the suspension after Mrs May became Prime Minister.
