Gay marriage legislation will need States resolution
Monday 3rd December 2012, 10:00AM GMT.
GAY marriage legalisation should be worked on at the same as the civil partnership legislation is being drawn up, Gavin St Pier has said.
But for that to happen would need a States’ resolution.
The Treasury minister will seek to get the issue on the agenda of the Social Policy Group, of which he is a member, so that it can be taken through to the States.
The States agreed six years ago that civil legislation should be drawn up and the Policy Council said this would be worked on at the beginning of next year.
‘Marriage should be something any two adults, whatever their sex, can do and the States should not prevent that couple,’ Deputy St Pier, pictured, said.
