Census (Return Particulars and Removal of Penalties) Bill [Lords]: Questions on gender identity (7 Oct 2019)

Preet Kaur Gill: I thank the Minister for his comments. It is worrying to hear him say that the ONS would think about pulling this whole section if this proposal went through, because, as the ONS will know, disaggregating data is very important and we know that there are a lot of issues to address on the data on gender and especially on ethnic minority groups. I am grateful to him for offering a meeting to...

Census (Return Particulars and Removal of Penalties) Bill [Lords]: Questions on gender identity (7 Oct 2019)

Preet Kaur Gill: I am glad that the hon. Gentleman has taken on board the issue of ending discrimination, because that is exactly what this new clause does, and that he fully backs it.

The relevance...
