star this property answer text <p>The Government Equalities Office is currently preparing the consultation on reform of the Gender Recognition Act, which will be published in due course. The responses to this consultation will be taken into account before deciding how to best reform the Gender Recognition Act 2004. <br> <br> Under the current Gender Recognition Act, trans people can change their legal gender by submitting a medical diagnosis of gender dysphoria, alongside other documentation including a second report from a medical professional, proof of having lived for at least two years in their acquired gender, and a statutory declaration that they intend to live in the acquired gender until death.</p><p>We are currently considering options for how we might we reform the current system, including examining how we could de-medicalise the legal process for changing gender.</p><p>The Gender Recognition Act does not, and will not, regulate the status of gender dysphoria as a mental health condition, as listed in medical handbooks. However, we are very clear that we do not consider being transgender to be a mental illness.</p>

This was estimated to be around £190m.</p><p> </p><p>It is not possible to determine accurately the total annual levy payments made by all NHS trusts. This is because HMRC administrative data does not enable NHS trusts and their associated PAYE schemes to be easily identified.</p> more like this

At the last inspection in November 2017, the Environmental Health Officer from WCC Food Safety Team awarded the highest rating of 5 for all House of Lords catering outlets in the Palace of Westminster; Millbank House facilities were inspected in November 2016 and also received a 5 rating. It is a recommendation but not a legal requirement to display the food hygiene rating sticker.

star this property answer text <p>Yes, Black Rod was consulted on the closure of College Green. The Green is owned by the House of Commons but day to day access is delegated by the Clerk of the House to Black Rod. Current policy is to allow public access to the Green to enable the public to pass through on the paths or to use it as a recreational space. It is also longstanding policy also to allow the media to use the Green for the contemporaneous news reporting of events within Parliament. Broadcasters are not charged to use the Green as is it considered to be in Parliament’s and the national interest that they should be facilitated to report on Parliament. As the Green is owned by the House of Commons, the question of charging would be a matter for them, not the House of Lords.</p> more like this

Local authorities can choose to deliver local services through companies provided that they assure themselves that doing so delivers best value to local residents. Local authorities, like other bodies, are subject to and must abide by competition law and it is their responsibility to ensure they comply with the requirements of state aid, competition and procurement law.</p> more like this
