When the inquiry was first launched there was a call for written evidence from both individuals and organisations. The deadline for written submissions was Friday 21 August 2015 and they received over 230 submissions. Organisations and individuals that have submitted evidence are not allowed to publish it on their own website, but the Committee is slowly releasing any evidence that is not private. The Committee made the following statement on 9th September:

The first tranche of evidence to the Transgender Equality inquiry has now been published. The Committee received over 230 submissions in total, much of which includes personal or other sensitive information, so it is taking longer than usual to process and will be published in stages.

We are hugely grateful to everyone who submitted evidence. All requests for confidentiality will be scrupulously observed and we are contacting witnesses to check we do not publish anything against their wishes.
