Gay weddings moved a step closer on Monday evening after David Cameron was forced to accept Ed Miliband‘s help to defeat an attempt by backbench Tory MPs, who complained about the “aggressive homosexual community”, to derail the legislation.
Anti-gay marriage Conservatives had tabled an amendment to the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill that, if passed, would have introduced civil partnerships for heterosexuals at the same time as gay marriage.
However the government had warned that to do so could cost up to £4bn and significantly delay the implementation of the entire bill. A vote in the Commons saw the amendment overwhelmingly defeated by 375 votes to 70.
The fear that the gay may marriage bill could be derailed by a backbench Tory “wrecking” amendment appears to have been lifted after the Labour Party said it would not vote with anti-gay marriage Conservatives.
A change to Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill tabled by Conservative Tim Loughton and due to be put to a vote on Monday would introduce civil partnerships for heterosexuals at the same time as gay weddings.
