Equality (Marriage) (Amendment) Bill — Protection In Respect of Beliefs About Definition of Marriage — 29 Jan 2013 at 13:43
John Penrose MP, Weston-Super-Mare did not vote.
The majority of MPs voted to give people protection from being discriminated against due to their beliefs about the definition of marriage.
The motion voted on was:
- That leave be given to bring in a Bill to amend the protected characteristics in the Equality Act 2010 to include a person’s conscientious beliefs about the definition of marriage; and for connected purposes.
The Bill did not become law as it failed to complete its passage through Parliament before the end of the session.
