Following reports today on alleged proposals for consultation in the Gender Recognition Bill, Ben Wilson, Equality and Human Rights Commission Executive Director, said:

"There's still so much more to do to ensure trans people can live as they choose without fear of discrimination or hostility. We welcome that the Government is prioritising this and seeking views from trans people themselves. We'll feed in information about a wide range of issues raised with us from school and work to other areas of life."
