RESPONSE TO HOMOPHOBIA ON PUBLIC TRANSPORT
EDM #383
Tabled 21 October 2014
2014-15 Session
That this House condemns the fact that a gay couple was ordered by a bus driver to leave a London bus as a result of their sexual orientation and that the couple were subject to sustained homophobic abuse; recognises that this is in direct contravention of the Equality Act 2010 which prohibits any sort of discrimination or victimisation in wider society including on public transport; welcomes the urgent investigation undertaken by TFL into this matter; and urges the Greater London Authority to conduct a thorough review of the level of equality and diversity training for the staff of all public bodies and executive agencies.
