STOP PRESS: Heathmen and Younger Men

BLACKPOOL: More than 30 delegates from the Conservative Party conference turned up for a discussion on homosexuality run by the Campaign for Homosexual Equality during the party’s annual conference here.

Most of the delegates at the meeting were Young Conservatives and an informal resolution was passed asking the Government to think of lowering the age of gay male consent from 21 to 16.

Among those taking part were Toby Ryde, CHE’s vice-chairman, Gini Bone, of CHE’s London Women% Group and Ian Harvey, former Tory MP for Harrow, and non-executive vice-president of CHE.

Although no firm proposals came out of the meeting, a spokesman for CHE told Gay News: “We were very pleased with the meeting.”
