Equality Bill [Lords] — New Clause 9 — Discrimination on grounds of gender reassignment — 16 Jan 2006 at 16:30

The no voters defeated a motion to introduce a new clause to the Equality Bill. In Lynne Jones' own words, the new clause was "intended to enable the protection of transsexual people from discrimination in the supply of goods and services by creating a power to introduce secondary legislation". The text of the clause was as follows.

  • (1) The Secretary of State may by regulations make provision about discrimination or harassment on grounds of gender reassignment.
  • (2) In section (1) "gender reassignment" has the meaning given by subsection 36.
  • (3) The regulations may, in particular—
    • (a) make provision of a kind similar to Part 2 of this Act;
    • (b) define discrimination;
    • (c) define harassment;
    • (d) make provision for enforcement (which may, in particular, include provision—
      • (i) creating a criminal offence of a kind similar to, and with the same maximum penalties as, an offence created by an enactment relating to discrimination or equality,
      • (ii) about validity and revision of contracts,
      • (iii) about discriminatory advertisements, and
      • (iv) about instructing or causing discrimination or harassment;
    • (e) provide for exceptions (whether or not of a kind similar to those provided for by Part 2 of this Act or any other enactment relating to discrimination or equality);
    • (f) make provisions which apply generally or only in specified cases or circumstances;
    • (g) make different provisions or different cases or circumstances;
    • (h) include incidental or consequential provision (which may include provision for amending an enactment);
    • (i) include transitional provision.
  • (4) The regulations—
    • (a) shall be made by statutory instrument, and
    • (b) may not be made unless a draft has been laid before and approved by a resolution of each House of Parliament.
  • (5) In subsection (3) (h) "enactment" includes an enactment in or under an Act of the Scottish Parliament.
