Hungary’s new law – which limits the teaching of homosexuality and transgender issues to under 18s – will face a referendum in the new year.

Viktor Orbán’s government calls it a ‘child protection law’ and says it keeps sexual propaganda out of schools, TV shows and adverts.

Critics say the law conflates homosexuality and paedophilia, and the EU has strongly condemned it as discriminatory and launched legal action against Hungary.

Emily Maitlis is joined by Hungary’s Secretary of State for International Communication and Relations, Zoltan Kovacs.
