Gender Recognition Bill — 23 Feb 2004 at 20:34
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.
The Bill provides transsexual people with the opportunity to gain the rights and responsibilities appropriate to the gender in which they are now living. At present, transsexual people live in a state of limbo. Their birth gender determines their legal status.
Those voting Aye to this bill were voting to progress the bill allowing transexual people to change their legal gender.
Question put, That the Bill be now read a Second time:-
The House divided: Ayes 335, Noes 26.
MPs for which their vote in this division differed from the majority vote of their party are marked in red. Also shows which MPs were ministers at the time of this vote. You can also see every eligible MP including those who did not vote in this division.
