Greens appalled at WA Labor Government failure to commit to banning LGBTIQ conversion practices

Greens spokesperson for Sexuality and Gender Identity Hon Alison Xamon MLC has criticised the WA Labor Government for its failure to commit to banning harmful LGBTIQ conversion practices, including in religious and informal settings.

Ms Xamon again questioned the Government in Parliament last night about its intentions for banning dangerous conversion practices which attempt to change a person’s sexuality or gender identity.


746. Hon ALISON XAMON to the parliamentary secretary representing the Minister for Health:

I refer to the ABC news article of 24 July 2020, “Fake psychologist scam victim urges new code of conduct to regulate counselling services”.

(1)  Why are Western Australian still not protected from harm caused by unregulated and untrained counsellors and psychotherapists?

(2)  Will the minister act to address this gap?

(3)  If yes to (2), when and by what mechanism?
