Campaigners fear conversion therapy ban is ‘dropped’ as government refuses to respond


Campaigners’ fears may have been realised as Downing Street says it has no update on the long-awaited conversion therapy ban, which many believe won’t be fulfilled as promised. In a comment to PinkNews, a spokesperson for No 10 said the Conservative government has no statement or update regarding its previous vow to outline plans of the delayed UK ban on so-called conversion therapy practices. The government previously vowed to outline plans to MPs, who would then scrutinise and refine the bill, in time for the King’s Speech on 7 November. Conversion therapy refers to efforts to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity in a bid to “cure” them.
