    ▪Disabled toilets should be present in all buildings where the public are in attendance ie any govt building, restaurant, cinema, pub, school, station, marketplace, park, shop, waiting room, etc.
    ▪Disabled toilets must not be used as store rooms. They must be inspected twice daily on opening days, and kept clean fresh and usable. There must be a working supply of flush water, washing water, soap, and paper handtowels.
