Whilst some forms of conversion practice already constitute a criminal offence, the Government will publish a draft Bill setting out our approach to banning those conversion practices which are still legal. This will include those acts targeted on the basis of being transgender. This will go for pre-legislative scrutiny by a joint committee. It is the Government's intention to complete pre-legislative scrutiny in the current parliamentary session.
