I am delighted the Supreme Court have ruled in favour of Charles and Rebecca and in favour of equality.
Charles and Rebecca have fought hard and long to get to this point and the Government could and should have acted a long time ago.
I hope that with this judgement the Government will now move urgently to support the extension of civil partnerships to all. This can be done via my Private Member’s Bill that is currently going through Parliament. It’s time to right this unintended inequality and give recognition and security to the many opposite sex couples who want to register their commitment in ways other than traditional marriage.
