Tag: Fran Wilde

Labour MP Fran Wilde introduced the Homosexual Law Reform Bill on 8 March 1985. It was a private member's bill that set out to decriminalise consensual homosexual activity and make it illegal to discriminate against people based on their sexual orientation. Part one (decriminalisation) of the Bill was passed on 9 July 1986. Part two (anti-discrimination) was lost.
