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:

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

Final rally for equal marriage
On the day of the vote the Equality Network will be holding a final rally in support of the Bill. Please join them outside the Scottish Parliament at 1pm on Tuesday 4th February to send a clear message to politicians that Scotland backs equal marriage!
