Sex Discrimination (Amendment) Bill 2001

The Sex Discrimination (Amendment) Bill 2001 was laid before the House of Lords earlier today.

If enacted, it will extend anti-discrimination legislation in connection with the provision of goods and services to private member clubs, but it will continue to permit wholly single-sex clubs.

It will also permit discrimination in sporting activities where a prize of over £1,000 is offered (ie a similar prize need not be offered to competitors of the other gender).

The Bill can be seen here.
