Gender Recognition Bill (23 Feb 2004)

Tim Boswell: I did not find the Minister's response on that entirely convincing. My own view is that it would be better to allow a longer period of reflection. Members of the transgender community have told us in briefing that they would rather not feel that a pistol was being held to their heads forcing them to make an immediate decision. I think that there is everything to be said for allowing the...

Public Bill Committee: Gender Recognition Bill [Lords] (9 Mar 2004)

Tim Boswell: ...down on that, as I may, my admirable colleagues on the Conservative Benches will be able to present those concerns. I have already made it clear to people who are members or supporters of the transgender community that, if the legislation is to be successful, it is important that we try to iron out all the potential difficulties, to ensure that there will be no unanticipated...

Public Bill Committee: Gender Recognition Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - Applications (9 Mar 2004)

Richard Younger-Ross: From a transgender point of view, I would imagine that the ideal situation is to be able to move from one country to another to work without the need to reapply. Does the Minister foresee a time when there will be mutual recognition between countries so that a person is not put through that additional process?

Public Bill Committee: Gender Recognition Bill [Lords]: Clause 3 - Evidence (9 Mar 2004)

Tim Boswell: ...has subsequently been changed by law and a person of the original sex. Conversely, however, according to the logic of his position, it would never be possible for persons who have gone through a transgender arrangement to have the relationship that they seek, or may be carrying out, recognised. It was revealing to read some correspondence I saw from someone who is not a constituent of...

Public Bill Committee: Gender Recognition Bill [Lords]: Clause 4 - Successful applications (11 Mar 2004)

Shaun Woodward: ...might be aware, I have lived through the experience with my own brother, now sister. If a couple marry in good faith as husband and wife, but the husband realises that it is right for him to transgender, to the outside world that is a case of woman and woman living together in a same-sex marriage—I use the term same-sex in relation to how we view same-sex marriage as a concept and to the...

Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Bill [HL] (15 Mar 2004)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: ...out to me that none of the organisations specifically would assist those who have suffered domestic violence and are from groups that would consider themselves to be gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. In addition, the list includes no organisation specifically targeted at disability groups. I have listed only those who have had contact with me so far, but I shall certainly continue to...

Public Bill Committee: Gender Recognition Bill [Lords]: Schedule 4 - Effect on marriage (16 Mar 2004)

Tim Boswell: My hon. Friend encapsulates the concerns of the debate. As I have made clear on previous occasions, including on Second Reading, for the Bill to succeed in its objective of helping transgendered people, it is important that the maximum degree of public acceptability and welcome is achieved, and that concerns are properly dispatched. I say to the Minister in all seriousness that there appears...

Public Bill Committee: Gender Recognition Bill [Lords]: Schedule 6 - Sex Discrimination (16 Mar 2004)

Tim Boswell: ...that if the issue is discrimination against transsexual people, as opposed to those whose gender has been reassigned, it is important not to create classes of discrimination between persons who are transgender but have not applied for a gender recognition certificate and those who have? Both may have exactly the same medical conditions and, notionally, suffer the same kind of discrimination.

Public Bill Committee: Gender Recognition Bill [Lords]: Clause 21 - Foreign gender change and marriage (16 Mar 2004)

Evan Harris: ..., which is probably why I am doing this and not practising. The point is that the relationship is not recognised as a same-sex marriage because without the gender recognition certificate the transgender status is not recognised for the purpose of marriage and the marriage has to be dissolved. The points that the hon. Lady raises are important because people's understanding of what...

Public Bill Committee: Gender Recognition Bill [Lords]: Clause 22 - Prohibition on disclosure of information (16 Mar 2004)

Tim Boswell: I am thinking whether it might be possible to agree with the main purveyors of this sort of historic information that there should be a code of practice to which they should adhere. Perhaps a transgender person who had received a certificate would be able to draw their attention to the provisions of the code of practice and encourage them to take the necessary steps to avoid personal...

We will continue to work with the communities to address any issues which emerge.

Orders of the Day — Gender Recognition Bill [Lords]: New Clause 2 — Application following issue of an interim gender recognition certificate (25 May 2004)

Glenda Jackson: Is help not already available for the industry, and would it not be possible for the small number of people who will be affected in this way—those who intend to live together post-transgender for the rest of their lives—simply to be incorporated through the legislation? Indeed, such legislation has benefited same-sex couples in this regard.

Orders of the Day — Gender Recognition Bill [Lords]: New Clause 3 — Olympic athletes (25 May 2004)

Tim Boswell: ...for updating me. I cannot claim responsibility for single-handedly getting the IOC to get its act together, but could he or the Under-Secretary confirm whether there is any possibility, given that transgender people, in addition to the remedial medication to which he referred, typically have to continue with other medication indefinitely, will fall foul of anti-doping codes? Will...

Orders of the Day — Gender Recognition Bill [Lords]: New Clause 4 — Marriage between transgendered persons (25 May 2004)

Richard Younger-Ross: ...those who were in favour of the Bill. On reflection, that is not the case, because much of the Bill is very Christian and religious. It recognises the genuine problems and the dilemma faced by transgender people. The new clause helps people who are in an invidious position. People who have been married in church, taken vows and made a sacrament or people of other faiths who have taken vows...

Orders of the Day — Gender Recognition Bill [Lords]: New Clause 7 — Successful applications: married couples (25 May 2004)

Richard Younger-Ross: ...and Highgate (Glenda Jackson) as the hon. Gentleman. That reminded me of the 1950s film, "Plan 9 from Outer Space", made by Ed Wood, who also made a movie called "Glen or Glenda?", about a transgendered person who wanted to change from one sex to the other. We think of transgender as a new issue, but that was in the 1950s. The issue is new only to the extent that science has allowed us to...

Scottish Parliament: Civil Partnership Bill (3 Jun 2004)

Margaret Smith: ...paying attention to many of the points that the Justice 1 Committee raised in its report. The bill will bring to an end much of the institutionalised discrimination that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people face every day of our lives. It will not on its own stamp out homophobia, but it will be a catalyst for change in that it will build a more equal Scotland where diversity is...
