Question

Is the Mayor aware that there are real difficulties facing bus drivers and other staff (over 23,000) working on London's buses due to the lack of toilet provision? Is he also aware that this lack of provision is especially difficult for women and can provide a real barrier to encouraging more women to work on our buses?

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am acutely aware of the difficulties experienced by bus workers due to the lack of toilets at the terminals of some routes, and of the effects this may have on recruitment ' especially of women. That is why I have asked TfL to give a very high priority to resolving the problem. Please refer to 960 / 2007 for information on the action TfL is taking.
