Jenny Willott MP for Cardiff Central backs Equal Marriage bill

Jenny Willott, MP for Cardiff Central, yesterday confirmed her support for the Equal Marriage bill. Speaking to Capital FM, Jenny said;

"I am 100% in favour of equal marriage - if a couple wish to show their love andcommitment to each other, I don't believe the State should stand in their way."

"However, I also think that it's absolutely critical that at the same time we continue to protect freedom of religion; denominations and faiths, like the Quakers and liberal Judaism, which want to carry out same sex marriages, should be able to do so, but equally those who are completely against it, like the Church of England and the Church in Wales, should be protected. It should be made very clear in legislation that they have the right not to carry out same sex marriages."
