The plan won support from Greens, Conservatives and Liberal Democrats, but was voted down by the Labour group

A plan to create more public toilets at Tube and bus stations across the capital has been rejected by City Hall, despite most London Assembly members voting in favour of it.

The £20 million proposal, put forward by Green Party members at City Hall, attracted support from the Assembly’s Liberal Democrat and Conservative groups – meaning a majority of Assembly Members (AMs) were behind it.

It was voted down by the Labour group however, preventing it from achieving the required two thirds of support among AMs.

London mayor Sadiq Khan said he would instead be willing to put funding aside for a feasibility study to explore the concept.
