Gender Equality In Succession To The Throne
That this House notes with concern that under the rule of primogeniture men have precedence over women in succeeding to the Throne; further notes the application of gender equality in other aspects of society; recognises that integralprimogeniture, or equal succession rights, were introduced in the Kingdoms of Sweden in 1980, the Netherlands in 1983, Norway in 1990, Belgium in 1991 and Denmark in 2009; and urges the Government to bring forward legislative proposals which will ensure non-gender biased succession rights.
This motion has been signed by a total of 13 MPs.
