Fri 18 Mar 2005 In: New Zealand Daily News

The introduction to parliament of a bill that would make discrimination against transgender people illegal has been delayed. Georgina Beyer, who was sheparding the private member's bill, says it has been delayed to give her time to gather more information for other MPs. MPs will not now be able to debate the bill before the general election Beyer dismisses opposition claims that Labour got the jitters ahead of the election and has pressured Beyer to delay the social reform legislation until next term.
