Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

LES­BIANS liv­ing in Suf­folk had to dis­close their sex­u­al­ity in a coun­cil sur­vey about RE­CY­CLING.

Res­i­dents were baf­fled when the ques­tion­naire, is­sued by Suf­folk County Coun­cil, asked them to re­veal their sex­ual ori­en­ta­tion.

The sur­vey was aimed to gather opin­ions on the open­ing hours and lay­out of the coun­cil’s re­cy­cling cen­tres.

But locals were also asked to state their age, race, re­li­gion – and whether they are straight or gay.

In a state­ment, the coun­cil said: “SCC un­der­stands that you may feel th­ese ques­tions are in­tru­sive and highly per­sonal.

“The information you sub­mit is vol­un­tary but it does make a dif­fer­ence.”
