a) going to expand the same provision to civil partnerships?
b) going to allow same sex marriage?
I suspect the answer to both is likely to be in the negative. Even though Cameron himself has said:
"I stood up… and said that marriage was important, and as far as I was concerned it didn't matter whether it was between a man and a woman, a man and a man or a woman and a woman."
Therefore I suspect that the Conservative party are going to put heterosexual commitment through a marriage act above that of heterosexuals.
