The government will provide child-friendly facilities in public toilets, the Legislative Council has been told. Small toilets and lower urinals and sinks will be provided at new public facilities such as parks, public markets, government offices, community centres, maternal and children's health centres and public hospitals, Secretary for Development Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor wrote in a reply to Legco yesterday. 'Moreover, when maintenance or improvement works are carried out for existing public facilities, the departments concerned will provide toilet facilities suitable for use by children.'
