asked Her Majesty's Government:
Further to the Written Answer by the Lord McIntosh of Haringey on 27 January (WA 37–38), whether they will provide a summary, which protects the confidentiality of respondents, of the responses from sports bodies to the consultation on the Gender Recognition Bill, with particular reference to whether sports should be exempted from the Bill; and
Further to the Written Answer by the Lord McIntosh of Haringey on 27 January (WA 37–38), whether all respondents to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport's consultation on the Gender Recognition Bill requested that their responses be treated in confidence; and, if so, whether it is appropriate to publish the names of organisations which have requested that their responses be treated in confidence.
Governing bodies and other sporting organisations responded to the consultation on the understanding that responses would not be published. Soundings were taken informally. The Government will not, therefore, be publishing the results. This is in accordance with exemption 14 of part 2 of the Code of Practice on Access to Government Information.
