Legal Recognition of Gender Bill 2013: First Stage

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to give effect to a person's right to have their gender identity recorded and recognised by the State, to establish and provide for the gender recognition register, to provide for certificates of birth that reflect a person's gender identity, to provide for the right to self-determine a person's preferred gender identity and to provide for the dignity of such persons and to provide for related matters.

Question put and agreed to.

When is it proposed to take Second Stage?

Next Tuesday, 2 July 2013.

Is that agreed? Agreed. Since this is a Private Members' Bill, Second Stage must, under Standing Orders, be taken in Private Members' time.

I move: "That the Bill be taken in Private Members' time."

Question put and agreed to.
