Gender Recognition Bill [Lords] — Successful applications: married couples — 25 May 2004 at 18:54

I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time.

This is a Bill with a simple rationale. It addresses the difficulties faced by a small, vulnerable minority who have been denied basic legal rights for too long, and seeks to provide transsexual people with legal recognition of an everyday reality: the gender to which they now belong. On meeting the criteria in the Bill, a person will become in law the gender in which he or she now lives. That means that he or she will be able to get a birth certificate that reflects the acquired gender, and be able to marry or claim a pension in that gender.

Question put, That the Bill be now read the Third time:-

Those voting Aye in this division were voting for to allow a transsexual person to change their legal gender.

The House divided: Ayes 355, Noes 46.
