Simon Hughes hints at gay marriage change

“We should be able to get there in this parliament.”

There is not yet a clear coalition line. David Cameron’s pre-election promise to look at the issue was criticised as a rather last-minute sop to a community many of which feel distrust towards the Conservative party. Pink News quotes gay Tory MP Nick Herbert as saying:

“It’s not something we’ve got immediate plans to change, but we recognise that there are views that say that the name is important.”

So changes may well be towards the end of this parliament, or indeed a promise for the next one.
