Women WILL be allowed to bar transgender people from female-only changing rooms in toilets and swimming pools

“This makes me sad”

Women will continue to have the right to exclude transgender people from female-only changing rooms, lavatories and swimming sessions, ministers have pledged.

In an apparent change of direction, they said the rights of those who ‘identify as women’ would not be put ahead of those who are biologically female.

The announcement comes in response to concerns over plans to allow transgender people to legally change their gender without having to undergo medical checks.
