UK Government Statement on Conversion Practices Bill

today17th January 2023


We have received the following statement, which sets out the UK Government’s intention to publish a Conversion Practices Bill.

A Government spokesperson said:

“We will be publishing a draft bill to ban conversion practices, protecting everyone.

“The Bill will go through pre legislative scrutiny in this parliamentary session. We hope to send it to a Joint Committee for scrutiny and will work with the Liaison Committee accordingly.

“There are clearly issues that are not fully resolved. We are determined that legislation will not cause harm to children and young adults experiencing gender related distress by inadvertently impacting on legitimate conversations parents or clinicians may have with their children.

“Pre legislative scrutiny exists to prevent this, and other unintended consequences, by utilising stakeholder expertise and input from parliamentarians.”
