A sign has appeared on a women’s toilet door in the House of Commons in recent weeks, labelling the facilities “inclusive”.
The original lettering that read “ladies” has been taped over and a new sign has been placed above it, signalling that people of all genders can use the toilets.
It features the silhouette of of a male, female as well as a gender-neutral one.
MPs have complained that they were not told about the changes before they were put in place by maintenance over the summer recess.
The change is not believed to be part of a plan to change all of the toilets in the Commons to gender neutral and the sign has been removed while enquiries are made into how it had been installed without approval.
Speaking to Mail Online a senior MP said: “It is concerning that this seems to have been done without consultation with any women.
“And, as usual, women are just expected to make way when the men’s facilities retain their original door sign.”
The Mail Online also understands a number of female MPs from different parties intend on writing to Speaker Lindsay Hoyle if the sign was authorised.
Earlier this week, Penny Mordaunt told GB News there is “too much b******s” in the debate about trans rights as she explained why “everyone gets their knickers in a twist” about it.
