Lynne: No U-Turn On Marriage
Following misleading press reports about what will or will not be in the upcoming Queen's Speech, LGBT equality minister Lynne Featherstone has blogged reassuring readers that the plans for same-sex civil marriage are still going ahead.
In the aftermath of a tough set of election results for both Conservatives and Liberal Democrats - I couldn't help but notice a few naysayers popping up in the media and uttering dire warnings about a government that needs to concentrate on core issues rather than same sex civil marriage.
For goodness sake - it's not either / or.
The economy is clearly the No 1 priority - but the Coalition can multi-task!
There will be no u-turn on equal marriage - we are committed as a government to legislate by 2015
