Gender Recognition Bill [Lords] — Religion — 25 May 2004 at 14:45

Mr Charles Hendry MP, Wealden voted in the minority (Aye).

The amendment under discussion would create protection for religious organisations against the effects of the bill (in a similar way that sporting events were granted protection). The amendment read as follows.

If a court’s determination of any question arising under this Act might affect the exercise by a religious organisation (itself or its members collectively) of the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion, it must have particular regard to the importance of that right.

The House divided: Ayes 104, Noes 276.
