P-05-1072 Investigate what powers the Welsh Parliament has in relation to banning conversion therapy, Correspondence – Petitioner to Committee, 02.11.20


Jane Hutts support for the LGBT+ community was a welcome point, however. The letter itself has no measure as to what the government could/should be doing to ban conversion therapy. This letter was just a generic statement of support and while that’s welcome, it doesn’t solve the issue. And the member is right to point out that all well respected medical bodies refuse to partake in the act. But, it’s not the well respected bodies we need to worry about. It’s the dangerous camps and facilities that believe that this conversion therapy works. As long as one conversion therapy location is available in Wales, the welsh government is failing the LGBTQ + community, ban the act.
