@Kaleidoscope_T @CrispinBlunt @DominicRaab @FCDOGovUK @APPGLGBT @CWEquality Congratulations Crispin but sad that we cannot get Secretary of State Elizabeth Truss, responsible for equalities, to commit to the same. Not get her or her department to answer letters from members of the House of Lords on LGBTQ issues.
