Tory leadership candidate Penny Mordaunt has said that she never supported plans to reform the Gender Recognition Act. Mordaunt served as equalities minister under Theresa May across 2018 and 2019, and during that time oversaw a public consultation on reforms to the GRA which were ultimately abandoned by Boris Johnson and Liz Truss. It was government policy at the time to seek to demedicalise the GRA, a move would have allowed trans people to self-declare their gender.
