Commenting on the Scottish Government's decision to delay announcing its position on equal marriage, leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats Willie Rennie MSP said:

"For the SNP to dillydally for the third time risks their credibility on equality.

"Most people who support equality and fairness in marriage will find this bewildering.

"I would urge the First Minister to stand firm against powerful opponents, heal any divides in his own cabinet and take a lead on equality in marriage."

Equal marriage was adopted as Scottish Liberal Democrat policy in 2010 ahead of its adoption by the federal Liberal Democrat party.
