Staff in the Visa, Status and Information Services department received an email ordering them to include their pronouns at the end of all messages they send. They must put “he/him” if they are a man, “she/her” if they are a woman or “they/them” if they don’t identify as either. But the Free Speech Union warned the order could breach equalities law. It has written to the Home Office’s top civil servant Matthew Rycroft to complain.
