Marsha de Cordova responds to resignation of Government’s own equalities advisor in protest at a “hostile environment” being created for LGBT+ people

Marsha de Cordova MP, Labour’s Shadow Equalities Secretary, responding to the resignation of the Government’s own equalities advisor in protest at a “hostile environment” being created for LGBT+ people, said:

“This Government have prevaricated over banning conversion therapy for far too long, despite their clear promise to do exactly that.

“This is a pattern of behaviour which seeks to dismiss the real impact of the discrimination experienced by so many and takes us back to the days of Thatcher.

“The Government must get on with setting out a clear plan now which will see an end to this inhumane practice that has no place in modern Britain.”
