Let nature win the day! ECHO.

KEEPING things moving smoothly in the workplace is not always easy, and there will always be clashes between managers and their employees.

But we would respectfully suggest that by decreeing that their workers should only go to the loo at specific times, bosses at United Biscuits, in Aintree, are in danger of seeing morale go down the pan.

It is in everyone's interests that productivity is at as high a level as possible, but this kind of Dickensian-style rule isn't just a step back in time but something which could, ultimately, lead to a breakdown in worker/ management relations - and, therefore, a fall in productivity.

Hopefully common sense will prevail in this delicate situation - and leave everyone feeling relieved.
