Milton Keynes North MP Ben Everitt has signed a letter calling on the Government to ban LGBTQ+ ‘conversion therapy’.
The letter to Liz Truss, the Women & Equalities Minister, has been signed by a large group of Conservative MPs and urges the Government to make specific legislation to protect LGBTQ+ people from the practice.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Health Secretary Matt Hancock have both committed to a review into ‘conversion therapy’.
Ben commented, “The practice of LGBTQ+ conversion therapy is absolutely abhorrent and has no place in society.
“I’m pleased the Government is committed to a review and I will continue to support the LGBTQ+ community from this disgusting practice.’”
