Appeal against the decision of Jeremy Baker J of 22 June 2018 to dismiss the claim for judicial review. The claimant challenged the policy of the Secretary of State for the Home Department that: (a) an applicant for a passport must declare their gender/sex as being either male or female, and (b) that a passport will only be issued bearing a male (“M”) or female (“F”) indicator in the gender/sex field on the face of the passport, and will not be issued with an unspecified (“X”) gender marker as provided for by the relevant International Civil Aviation Organisation Standards and made available in a number of other jurisdictions worldwide.
