Supporting Campaign for Equal Marriage
In Government Labour did a lot to legislate for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Trans equality. When we came to power it was illegal for public bodies – teachers or local government officers – to promote homosexuality. That mind set is now history.
There are hundreds, or maybe even thousands of same sex couples in my constituency, and they should have an equal right to marry and the same recognition from the state as anyone else.
I support Labour’s campaign for equal marriage and will continue to press the Government for equal treatment of heterosexual and same-sex partnerships, and will vote in favour of gay marriage if and when there is a vote in the House of Commons.
