LAW AND JUSTICE—SEX AND GENDER DIVERSE PEOPLE—PASSPORTS

Senator Pratt, pursuant to notice of motion not objected to as a formal motion, moved general business notice of motion no. 451—That the Senate notes:

 (a) the new guidelines announced by the Government that make it easier for sex and gender diverse people to get a passport in their preferred gender;

 (b) that this policy will significantly reduce the administrative burden and inconvenience caused to sex and gender diverse people who require a passport that reflects their gender and physical appearance; and

 (c) that the initiative is in line with the Australian Government's commitment to remove discrimination on the grounds of gender identity and sexual orientation.

Question put and passed.
