A little inconvenience…

kidderminster_station_severn_valleySheena Murray found this little gem amidst the mandates  issued at the AGMs of the National Federation of WIs…

That this meeting calls the attention of the railway companies to the inadequate number and deplorable condition of the lavatories in most railway stations and trains in England and Wales and urges the provision of better facilities and that on long distance trains there should be a special compartment, suitably fitted, where mothers and babies could attend to their needs in privacy.

Further that representations be made to the Minister of Health that the provisions of the Public Health Act in relation to sanitary conveniences be extended to apply to any sanitary convenience to which members of the public have access, situated on the premises of a railway.

That was in May 1946!!!!!!!
