The country’s most senior judge has declared that gender-neutral toilets should not cause controversy because they have always been used in France.

Lord Burnett, who as Lord Chief Justice is in charge of the judiciary in England and Wales, spoke out after unisex facilities were introduced at the High Court’s headquarters during a refurbishment programme.

His defence of toilets shared by both sexes follows three years of controversy over the introduction of gender-neutral cubicles in a wide range of public buildings, including schools, colleges, Army bases and the Home Office in Westminster.
