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.
