So, recent thread I can’t find right now encouraged me to write to my MP regarding an EDM about Gender Self ID. Transgender Rights EDM 355.
He has responded (!) stating that:
“I would like to reassure you that it is very unlikely that this EDM would become law.
EDMs are formal motions submitted for debate in the House of Commons – however, very few are actually debated never mind translated into law. EDMs are mostly used by an MP or groups of MPs to draw attention to an event or a cause they believe in. They are mostly for publicity purposes and I have a policy of not signing or supporting any.”
So is there something else out there that’s further through ‘the system’ I should be worried about?
