  1. It is absolutely imperative when this Bill is introduced that is applies throughout the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland; and not just to England & Wales, as is the case with much legislation, with people in Scotland and Northern Ireland being dependent upon the willingness of their Parliament and Assembly to follow Westminster’s example.
    We can not allow a situation similar to the decriminalisation of homosexuality – in 1967 decriminalisation was enacted for England & Wales, Scotland had to wait until 1980 and Northern Ireland until 1982, an inequality which was perpetuated for another 13 and 15 years respectively; and decriminalisation was finally enacted for Northern Ireland only after a (six-year) case was taken to the European Court.
