Rishi Sunak is expected to bring in a long-promised ban on conversion therapy after a backlash from Conservative MPs. The PM is finally set to include a draft bill in the King’s Speech to prohibit attempts to change someone’s sexuality, amid growing anger over delays and uncertainty. The bill will also protect transgender people from efforts to change anyone’s gender identity, according to The Times – a crucial inclusion that LGBT+ campaigners had been demanding. Mr Sunak was thought to be considering ditching the bill over fears in some quarters that teachers, parents and therapists could be penalised for trying to offer guidance to young people.
