LKS 20230119 People hold placards as they take part in a demonstration for trans rights outside the UK Government Office at Queen Elizabeth House in Edinburgh, Scotland on January 19, 2023. - The UK government denied Tuesday it was dismantling Scottish self-rule after exercising an unprecedented veto to block a new law passed already by the Edinburgh parliament. The legislation would make it easier for people to self-identify as transgender in Scotland, without the need for a medical diagnosis, and lower the qualifying age from 18 to 16.
