Liberal Democrat MP for Bath Wera Hobhouse has given a cautious welcome to the latest Conservative U-Turn over Conversion Therapy.

"A u-turn on a u-turn on a u-turn, but welcome so long as the Government doesn't change their mind again. The intolerable practice of conversion therapy must be banned and must be trans inclusive.

"No more delay - get on with it!" she tweeted today.

The Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, Michelle Donelan MP announced today in a written statement that the ban on conversion therapy promised in 2018 will be brought forward "shortly".

It was announced three Prime Ministers ago under Theresa May.
