GENDER RECOGNITION BILL - EXEMPTION FOR SPORT

Following discussions between the Government, UK Sport and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) an amendment is today being tabled on the Gender Recognition Bill.

This amendment will enable UK sporting bodies to continue to make decisions about whether individual transsexual people may take part in sports competitions. The wording of the amendment will be revisited after the IOC finishes consulting sport's international governing bodies on the issue. The IOC Executive Committee will be making their final decision at their February meeting.
