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.

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."
