We will be publishing the consultation of the Gender Recognition Act in due course. We have, as part of our recent LGBT survey, asked about the views and experiences of transgender people who have applied for a Gender Recognition Certificate under the GRA. We will publish the results of this survey shortly. We have already begun engaging with a wide range of people and organisations to understand their views. These organisations include transgender, LGBT, women’s rights and faith groups. The Government recognises that there is a wide range of views on the Act. It has been valuable to hear these different voices prior to the consultation. We are also working across Whitehall to ensure we fully understand what impact there could be from any reform to the Gender Recognition Act.
