The Lawyer can exclusively reveal that Lovells has removed all the condom machines from the toilets in its new Holborn headquarters, just days after having them installed
Lovells senior sources have blamed the situation on a mix-up with the vending machine suppliers, rather than an attack of management indecision over condom policy. Lovells installed vending machines in the men's toilets, although not the women's, around a fortnight ago. The machines contained headache tablets, stomach settlers and three varieties of condom. But last week the machines were closed and then reopened minus the condom dispensers. "The vending machine people took it upon themselves to shove in three different types of condom, to our horror. We said we didn't want them and they were taken away," said a senior Lovells source.
