Rishi Sunak – 2018 Comments on Changing Places Toilets

The comments made by Rishi Sunak, the then Local Government Minister, on 24 December 2018.

Changing Places toilets make a huge difference to the lives of severely disabled people. I want to see these facilities included as standard in new large buildings like shopping centres and cinemas, so more disabled people can be assured peace of mind and dignity when they are away from home.

The government will consult in the New Year on how best to do this, including changing building regulations if required, if it means more disabled people can get access the essential services they deserve.
