To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department if she will make a statement on progress towards achieving equal rights for transsexuals. [116293]

The Government's policy on transsexual people remains unchanged from that set out in the Written Ministerial Statement I made on 16 December 2002,Official Report, column 36WS. We are committed to legislating as soon as possible to give transsexual people their Convention rights.
