Lib Dems should not take all credit
ACCORDING to Jeremy and Sheila Friend-Smith we have to thank the Lib Dems for saving the Sacrist s Gate toilets from closure. The actual facts are, all Lib Dems who sat on the community services committee when this issue came up voted to close these toil
ACCORDING to Jeremy and Sheila Friend-Smith we have to thank the Lib Dems for saving the
Sacrist's Gate toilets from closure. The actual facts are, all Lib Dems who sat on the community services committee when this issue came up voted to close these toilets.
I'm very pleased, after public consultation, this decision was reversed due to the inadequate disabled access at the Palace Green toilets, and good housekeeping by the community services committee.
Nothing to do with pressure from the Lib Dems!
I would suggest that the Friend-Smiths, rather than having their photo taken, would be better speaking to their Lib Dem colleagues who voted to close this much-needed facility.
