Legal battle over veto of ‘doomed’ Scottish gender reform bill would be ‘mistake’, legal experts say


A legal battle over the UK government’s veto of Nicola Sturgeon’s ‘doomed’ gender reform bill would be a costly ‘mistake’, legal experts have warned.

The Scottish First Minister is gearing up to fight the imposition of a section 35 order which has blocked the SNP’s overhaul of gender recognition laws.

The decision to block the law has been harshly criticised by Ms Sturgeon, but one former supreme court judge has said the chances of it being overturned are incredibly low.

Lord Hope of Craighead said the case put forward by the UK government is ‘devastating’ and questioned whether fighting it would be a ‘sensible use of public money’.
