Conversion therapy: Public to be consulted before ban (UK)

Conversion therapy: Public to be consulted before ban (BBC)

A public consultation will be opened before a ban on so-called conversion therapy, the BBC understands."Conversion therapy" attempts to change someone's sexual orientation or gender identity, according to NHS England. The consultation will consider religious freedom and how to protect professionals, including therapists, say government sources. The proposed ban on conversion therapy in England and Wales will be announced in the Queen's Speech on Tuesday.

Campaigners say ministers must act fast and bring in a ban across all settings.

I expect they will end up doing the right thing, but we will see.
