This one has a deadline of Dec 18th.

The consultation seeks your views on the following questions:

Question 1: Do you think that the language used is appropriate and sensitive to the issues addressed? If not, please identify concerns and share how it can be improved.

Question 2: When considering the factors that are relevant to prove deception and lack of consent, does the guidance strike the right balance between recognising the rights of trans persons to live fully in their new gender identity and the need not to put an undue onus on complainants to discover or confirm the gender status of the suspect?

Question 3: Do you agree with the evidential considerations that prosecutors must consider? If not, please identify what should be added, removed, or amended.

Question 4: Do you agree with the three stages that should be considered when prosecutors are considering the question of deception as to gender?

Question 5: Do you agree with the public interest factors that are listed?

Question 6: Are there any further factors in favour of prosecution that should be included?

Question 7: Are there any further factors tending against prosecution that should be included?

Question 8: Do you have any other feedback you wish to share around how the revised guidance could be improved?

One can submit through the online form or email (via downloadable word doc).
