“The biggest uncertainty facing the same-sex marriage bill is how the House of Lords will vote,” Peter Tatchell, human rights campaigner and co-ordinator of the Equal Love campaign has warned.
“We just don’t know how much opposition there will be in the upper house. It would be a big mistake to assume that equal marriage is a done deal.
“There is no room for complacency,” Mr Tatchell said. “We need to lobby the Lords just like we lobbied the Commons. Church leaders and right-wing peers are determined to derail the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill. They’ll try to vote it down or introduce wrecking amendments.”
