Lesbian and Gay History

Volume 455: debated on Tuesday 16 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what sponsorship was provided to Lesbian and Gay History Month by her Department in (a) 2005 and (b) 2006; and what sponsorship is planned for 2007. (106940)

The Department of Health has not previously sponsored Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) History Month. We did not provide funding in 2005 or 2006 and there are currently no plans to fund LGBT history month in 2007.

We are working with LGBT History Month to develop a resource detailing the implications for healthcare organisations of the forthcoming regulations on prohibiting sexual orientation discrimination in the provision of goods, facilities and services.
