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.

She writes:

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
