Meg delighted with Civil Partnership figures

Thursday, June 28, 2007

Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn has spoken of her delight that 18,000 couples have entered into Civil Partnership since they were introduced in December 2005. The figures were released today by National Statistics showing the popularity of the change in the law.

 

Meg said:

 

“Introducing Civil Partnerships was part of the Government’s equality agenda and these figures show that it has been welcomed by many people. Previously couples did not have their loving and strong relationship recognised by society.

 

I am proud to be part of a party and a Government which has social justice and equality at the heart of its values. I wish those who have entered into a civil partnership all the best for the future.”

 

The Government introduced a number of measures to make Britain a more equal society. These include: abolishing Section 28, equalising the age of consent, outlawing discrimination in employment and establishing civil partnerships.
