The Census (Amendment) Act 2000

A question on religion was proposed in the White Paper in March 1999 subject to a change to the Census Act, which did not then provide the authority for such a question to be included in a census in Great Britain. A Bill providing for such particular to be included in a census gained Royal Assent on 28 July 2000. Similar legislation in Scotland received Royal Assent on 10 April 2000.
