Tabled 30 January 2012
2010-12 Session
That this House notes the vital contributionmadeby Alan Turing to Britain's war effort by inventing the machine that broke the Enigma code; regrets that following his years of national service he received a criminal conviction for having a sexual relationship with another man; further regrets that he was forced to take oestrogen therapy or be sent to prison if he did not comply; further regrets that he went on to take his own life on 8 June 1954 at the age of just 41 years; further notes that so far over 21,000 people have signed the e-petition on the 10 Downing Street website calling for Alan Turing to be pardoned; and supports these calls, and acknowledges the huge and unnecessary suffering that he and so many other gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people have had to endure.
