Mike fully supports the Prime Minister’s commitment to equal marriage rights for same-sex couples.
Mike wrote to the Prime Minister in August to voice his concern over marriage inequality for same-sex couples. It was announced by David Cameron at the Conservative Party Conference that he planned to legalise same-sex marriage. A consultation is due to begin in the spring with a view to opening up marriage to same-sex couples in the near future.
Commenting, Mike said: “This issue is all about doing what is right and I know that many of my colleagues feel exactly the same way. Cameron was spot on when he said that he supported gay marriage. The State shouldn’t be stopping people from doing things because of their sexuality. I am amazed that such blatant discrimination still goes on.”
