The UK Government’s decision to block gender reforms in Scotland does not have “an iota of good faith”, Nicola Sturgeon has said.Scottish Secretary Alister Jack said on Monday that the Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill would be blocked using – for the first time – Section 35 of the Scotland Act.The decision has sparked concern over its impact on devolution and further intensified the debate on trans rights that raged for most of 2022 in the Scottish Parliament ahead of the Bill being passed by MSPs in December.Opponents of the legislation have said it will impact on the Equality Act, particularly around single-sex spaces, but Ms Sturgeon and her Government repeatedly rejected that position – and the First Minister added there is “no justification” for blocking the Bill.She went on to say the UK Government is “hostile” to the Scottish Parliament.Co-director of For Women Scotland Susan Smith clashes with the host of Gender Nebulous Podcast Freda Wallace on the Westminster Government’s blocking of this bill.
