Gender Recognition

Question for Women and Equalities

UIN 177662, tabled on 10 October 2018

To ask the Minister for Women and Equalities, for what reason hard-copy responses to the consultation on reform of the Gender Recognition Act have to be sent to an address at the Department for Education and online responses to the Government Equalities Office.

As part of our pre-consultation engagement in the run up to publishing the Gender Recognition Act Consultation, the Government Equalities Office met over 70 organisations and stakeholders. These included LGBT organisations, women’s groups, faith organisations, refuges and domestic violence campaign groups, local government, campaign organisations such as Woman’s Place UK, unions, transgender charities, government departments and other European governments. Gendered Intelligence were one of these groups.

The Government Equalities Office is physically based in the Department for Education building in Westminster. Hard copy responses to the consultation must therefore be addressed to the Government Equalities Office in the Department for Education.
