Stonewall Cymru welcomes the opening of the equal marriage consultation

Stonewall Cymru today warmly welcomed the launch of the UK Government’s formal consultation on extending the legal form of marriage to same-sex couples.

Stonewall Chief Executive Ben Summerskill said: ‘We’re delighted that this consultation is finally taking place. As Stonewall’s draft Marriage Bill shows, the steps necessary to extend the legal form of marriage to same-sex couples needn’t take much parliamentary time. We look forward to this important measure being included in the Queen’s Speech on May 9 and being enacted as soon as possible.
