Following the launch of the Liberal Democrat party’s 2010 election manifesto, Stonewall today welcomed election pledges that impact directly on lesbian, gay and bisexual people in Britain.
‘Liberal Democrats want to build a society where everyone has the opportunity to get on in life. Most businesses do a great job of supporting their employees, but there is more to do to tackle discrimination on the grounds of gender, sexuality, age, race, religion or disability.’ (Page 30)
‘We will… Confront bullying, including homophobic bullying, and include bullying prevention in teacher training.’ (Page 35)
‘We will… Require better recording of hate crimes against disabled, homosexual and transgender people, which are frequently not centrally recorded.’ (Page 73)
Stonewall will be responding to all of the main party manifestoes as they are published.
