moved Amendment No. 3:

Before Clause 19, insert the following new clause-

"RELIGION

(1) A body which exists for the purposes of organised religion may, if subsection (2) is satisfied, prohibit or restrict the participation in its religious activities or ceremonies of persons whose gender has become the acquired gender under this Act.

(2) This subsection is satisfied if the prohibition is necessary to-

(a) comply with the doctrines of the religion, or

(b) avoid offending the religious susceptibilities of a significant number of the religion's followers.

(3) "Religion" means any religion, religious belief or similar philosophical belief.

(4) This section does not affect-

(a) section 19 of the Sex Discrimination Act 1975 (c. 65) (ministers of religion etc.), or

(b) Article 21 of the Sex Discrimination (Northern Ireland) Order 1976 (S.I. 1976/1042 (N.I. 15)) (corresponding provision for Northern Ireland)."

On Question, Whether the said amendment (No. 3) shall be agreed to?

Their Lordships divided: Contents, 144; Not-Contents, 149.
