Minister confirms 'John' is a lady

I reproduce the following from Westminster Hall without comment:

Joan Ruddock: Last week the Minister talked about skills, and praised the chief executive officer of the National Skills Academy for Nuclear, John Llewellyn.
The Minister of State, Department of Energy and Climate Change (Charles Hendry): Jean Llewellyn.
Joan Ruddock: I am grateful for the Minister's advice. I shall call him Mr Llewellyn-I do not know him.
Charles Hendry: She is a lady.
Joan Ruddock: I accept entirely that I have made an error, but I obtained the information from a good source, so I blame that source and not myself. I accept that the chief executive officer is a woman.
