  • Overview

    Heterosexual couples may soon be allowed to enter into civil partnership. The Civil Partnership Act 2004 (Amendment) Bill 2015-16 was recently introduced to Parliament by MP Tim Loughton and is expected to have its second reading at the end of January 2016. The legislation seeks to rectify what Mr Loughton, who opposed the introduction of same-sex marriage, has referred to as the “glaring inequally” between gay and straight couples who aren’t allowed to enter into civil partnership.
