The Marriage and Civil Partnership (Scotland) Bill is an historic step forward for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality in Scotland. It has the potential to deliver equal partnership rights for trans and intersex people. However, we have identified five improvements that need to be made in order to ensure that it does. We have therefore proposed five amendments to the Bill. The Equal Opportunities Committee has made recommendations relating to these amendments and we hope that the Scottish Parliament will vote to support them.
