MP for Hornsey and Wood Green
It’s been quite a journey – but today as this post goes up – I am announcing in my keynote speech to Liberal Democrat conference that in March, this Government will begin a formal consultation on equal civil marriage for same-sex couples.
This would allow us to make any legislative changes before the end of this Parliament.
We will be working closely with all those who have an interest in the area to understand their views ahead of the formal consultation.
The consultation will only cover civil marriage for same sex couples – not religious marriage.
