Labour Councillors have written to Lord Ashcroft to urge him to re-open Westminster’s public toilets closed as a result of his company Carlsle’s contractual dispute with Westminster City Council;
I am very concerned that one of your companies, Carlisle, has unilaterally closed a number of public toilets as a consequence of a contractual dispute with Westminster City Council.
Clearly, the contractual issues need to be resolved by the normal legal processes. However, your decision to close a number of public toilets in the West End and elsewhere is causing massive problems for residents, workers, tourists, shoppers and cabbies.
Please can you intervene as a matter of urgency to ensure that all the closed public toilets are back open first thing on Monday morning.
Councillor Paul Dimoldenberg
Leader of the Opposition
Westminster City Council
