Government to unveil consultation plans for equal marriage in England and Wales tomorrow
Consultation plans for the UK government’s introduction of civil marriage equality for gay couples are expected to be unveiled today.
The consultation, which will examine how, rather than whether, to introduce equal marriage will be revealed by the equalities minister Lynne Featherstone with the backing of the prime minister and deputy prime minister.
The move was announced in September 2011 with a Downing Street source saying David Cameron had “personally intervened” to ensure that the consultation takes place and that the law is changed within the lifetime of this parliament.
