Urgent question on the Government's LGBT action plan

03 July 2018

Shadow Secretary of State for Women and Equalities, Dawn Butler, asked an urgent question in the House of Commons on the Government's LGBT action plan on Tuesday 3 July 2018.

The question was responded to by the Minister for Women and Equalities, Penny Mordaunt, who stated that the action plan will "include the appointment of a national LGBT health adviser in the NHS to tackle the health inequalities that LGBT people face, the extension of our existing anti-homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying programme, and a commitment to end the practice of conversion therapy in the UK."

Dawn Butler followed up by saying the Labour Party "would like to know the Government’s plans as chair of the Commonwealth"
