Vote on gay marriage likely in new year

Vote on gay marriage likely in new year
Downing Street has failed to quash reports that David Cameron and Nick Clegg have agreed a deal to bring about a vote on gay marriage in the New Year.

The Government had previously only planned to bring in legislation at some point before the 2015 election.

A Number 10 Spokeswoman today declined to comment on the story in the Daily Mail which said gay marriage could be pushed through Parliament within weeks. She said: "We are going to respond to the consultation before Christmas... We recognise it's an emotive issue."

The plans are likely to face opposition from MPs within the Conservative Party and senior figures in the Church, including the new Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.
