*R (on the application of Elan-Cane) v Secretary of State for the Home Department (Human Rights Watch intervening)

Passport – United Kingdom passport. Her Majesty's Passport Office's policy to require those who applied for the issue of a passport to declare whether their gender was either male or female, rather indicating an unspecified sex, did not breach arts 8 or 14 of the European Convention on Human Rights. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the claimant's application for judicial review, further held that the policy was not irrational, relevant matters had been considered and irrelevant matters had not been taken into account.
