It is looking less and less likely that the abhorrent practice of so-called ‘conversion therapy’ will be banned before the next general election, as proposals have not been included in the upcoming King’s Speech. Legislation to outlaw conversion practices was promised five years ago under Theresa May’s government but since then, and three prime ministers later, the Conservatives have dropped, reinstated, U-turned and delayed a ban. In recent weeks, there has been speculation over whether a draft bill will be included in the King’s Speech on Tuesday (7 November), with Rishi Sunak’s government allegedly promising to have it in the speech before facing “intense” pushback from some MPs.
