The Civil Service has been scrutinised this week for offering gender-fluid staff two ID cards to access buildings.

HMRC posted an announcement to staff last week in which they informed them of the policy from the “Trans+Staff Diversity Network”.

Both passes have different images on but linked to the same designated number that the member of staff uses.

It informed them that members of staff who were “gender fluid, non-binary, multigender and/or transgender” could express their gender “differently” at different times and that they would apply for the second pass or identity card in order for them to be able to bring “their whole self to work”.

HMRC told the Mail Online: “This is not new policy. It is in place to help protect everyone’s security and ensure all colleagues feel welcome in the workplace.”

Caroline Ffiske said: “This is insane. What weird climate of fear exists within our civil service that allows this to be signed off? Time for a full enquiry into the capture of our public sector by Stonewall and other gender ideologues.”

Last week the Cabinet Office scrapped a number of gender inclusion workshops after receiving complaints from civil servants that the sessions were “scientifically nonsensical”.

The sessions were run by a:gender, who describe themselves as a “network supporting all trans and intersex staff across Government” and carried out across several Whitehall

departments.

They were scrapped over concerns about the content discussed in them and complaints from civil servants who claimed to leave “shaking with distress” because it was “scientifically so nonsensical and bizarre”.
