Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 23 February 2017

To ask the Scottish Government when it will introduce legislation regarding legal recognition for non-binary genders.

Answered by: Angela Constance 2 March 2017

The Scottish Government is committed to reviewing and reforming gender recognition law to ensure that it is in line with international best practice. We expect to publish a wide ranging consultation on the Gender Recognition Act 2004 this summer. We aim to take action on reforming gender recognition law soon after the consultation process is completed, with the aim of implementing new arrangements by 2020.
