Based on PQ's comments this seems largely reasonable to me, assuming certain suggestions are implemented in a second reading.

I support this Bill and welcome the suggested improvements for a second reading.

There shouldn't need to be I don't think.

The contents of the bill.
The contents of the other bill that you happily supported despite having absurd requirements should already happen

I think this sentence may be missing a word somewhere?

Do I even need to state the risks?
For one, if there is a toilet in the restaurant not accessible to the public that probably means it’s through the kitchen, letting random people through the kitchen which needs to meet hygiene standards is a nightmare.

Secondly, shops not having public toilets means that their toilets are in a staff only area. Which means that the shop now realistically need to ensure that there is a staff member available to chaperone the toilets to prevent loss. That’s a rediculous requirement too. Many shops that meet the standard above only have one or two members of staff on at a time. If one is on break then the shop will literally have to shut so that someone can use the loo.

A far better solution is to just increase the number of public loos out and about...

I cannot support this bill, although the medical conditions surely are a problem and facilities are sometimes lacking for those effected, the implementation of this bill leaves a lot to be desired.

Probably, the point is the bill referred to the other day has far more absurd requirements in that it mandated disabled access in areas disabled people would not be allowed to enter on H&S grounds, areas that under RL legislation are exempted from requiring disabled access because it's stupid to require it, despite that you happily supported it. Why is this bill different?

I support this bill. Simple acts that many of us take for granted are much more difficult to some, and voting “aye” on this motion will take us one step closer to redressing that balance.

What a frankly stupid overture. There's no doubt that those with conditions which leave them passing waste by-products at a greater rate than most do need access to facilities, but whether businesses choose to provide those services, free of charge, is entirely up to them. It's a daft move to try and interfere with the intricate workings of private enterprise, and it's one that markets wouldn't respond to well as a signal for change in wider business policy.
