Stonewall Chief Executive Ben Summerskill said: ‘We’re disappointed that this modest measure has not been included in the Queen’s Speech. We trust that extension of the legal form of marriage to gay people isn’t going to turn into a “tuition fees” issue, announced with much hoopla in the run-up to an important election and then abandoned. Stonewall will fight on to push both coalition parties to deliver on their promise to implement this measure by 2015.’
