UK government blocks Scottish gender recognition reforms Education Secretary Gillian Keegan said she finds criticism of the Government’s move to block Scotland’s gender recognition reforms “surprising”. She said the UK Government cannot have “competing” gender and equality legislation. She told BBC Breakfast “the Scottish Act … was set up 25 years ago within the legislation designed in this power for exactly this type of scenario”. She said that, while the power has never been used before, “now, with the Gender Recognition Act, the Secretary of State for Scotland has used this power because we can’t have two competing gender and equality legislations.“ So we need to look at that and need to work out what to do, and he’ll be setting out and making a statement later on today in Parliament.” The Mirror Homepage: https://www.mirror.co.uk The Mirror Facebook: http://facebook.com/dailymirror The Mirror IG: http://instagram.com/dailymirror The Mirror TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@dailymirror The Mirror Twitter: http://twitter.com/DailyMirror Sign up for our newsletters: https://www.mirror.co.uk/email #TheMirror #News #LGBT
