can go for Change facilities can influence travel and leisure options as well as providing barriers to professional life

non-existent without

policy for support staff so

I’ve had

I don’t like putting my handbag down on some floors; why on earth should I be expected to lie my precious son on them”

1775 - The first patent for the flushing water closet was issued

to Alexander Cummings. 1852 first public toilet (flushing).

Since then technology and human rights has enormous advances
