Banning LGBT 'conversion therapy'


As Shadow Women and Equalities Minister I spoke in yesterday’s Westminster Hall Debate on so-called LGBT conversation therapy.

These so-called therapies are disgusting, exploitative, damaging and a relic of bigotry.

Last year the Prime Minister said “What we are going to do is a study right now on, you know, where is this actually happening, how prevalent is it, and we will then bring forward plans to ban it”.

But this is not good enough. We need action on this now. LGBT+ people simply cannot wait for the Government to dither and delay while this abhorrent practice is allowed to continue.
