Final vote on Scotland's equal marriage bill

Wednesday, January 22, 2014 - 10:30

On Tuesday 4th February the Scottish Parliament will hold its final vote on Scotland's equal marriage bill. The stage 3 debate on the Marriage and Civil Partnership (Scotland) Bill will give MSPs a final chance to amend the Bill and then decide whether to pass it into law.
LGBT Consortium mmebers, The Equality Network says that with less than two weeks to go until this final vote it is vital that we all ask MSPs to support the Bill and reject any amendments that would roll back LGBT equality:  

You can contact your MSPs and the party leaders here: www.equalmarriage.org.uk/itstime

Please also encourage your friends and family to do the same using our new Twitter and Facebook messages:
