Lynne Featherstone appointed Equalities Minister
We are delighted that co-founder of the Campaign for Body Confidence Lynne Featherstone MP is now the new Under Secretary of State for Equalities in the Home Office. We hope that we will now see some of our policies being put into practice.
“This is a huge opportunity to change things for the better. I will be able to do – not just to say. For two years as Shadow Equalities spokesperson – through the Equality Bill, through countless speeches to groups, through our conference policy papers on Women and Youth – it has always been about what Lib Dems would do about equality if we were in government. The chance to deliver Liberal Democrat equality policy is phenomenal.”
