Geoffrey Clifton-Brown MP voted against the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill, fulfilling the pledge that he had made to the hundreds of constituents who have written to him.

He confirmed that only a handful of constituents had written supporting the Bill. After the Vote the Cotswolds MP said:

“I fully support same sex couples to participate in civil ceremonies, which give them all of the rights and privileges that married couples have.

“However I believe that marriage, whether it be civil or religious, is different because it is between a husband and a wife mainly with the aim of having children.

“Although I fully respect all of those who hold this view very strongly, Parliament has now voted to allow same sex marriage to proceed and it remains to be seen what unexpected consequences that it will cause” concluded Geoffrey Clifton-Brown MP .
