Same Sex Marriage: Government consultation and membership survey report

The report on PCN members’ views about gay marriage is now posted on the website. I am grateful to the 190 members who responded to the survey. All 190 said that PCN should make a submission to the Home Office consultation. 177 [94%] were in favour of same sex marriage. 7 [4%] objected to same sex marriage. 6 could not be categorised. 173 [92%] said the government had not gone far enough and that same-sex marriage should be available in a religious ceremony not just civil ceremonies. These findings formed the basis of PCN’s submission to the Home Office. The full report on the survey results is now available on the PCN Britain web site – it makes for some interesting reading.
