DELGA President Evan Harris MP

As the battle for full implementation of the equality law on goods and services continues, Dr Evan Harris, president of DELGA, said: "The Catholic Church have threatened to stop their adoption work and even close homeless shelters if they are not allowed to discriminate and harass citizens who are gay or lesbian.

"So the Government must call their bluff and refuse public funding or public contracts to such organisations unless they agree to non-discrimination."
