Equal Civil Partnerships Campaign responds to news of snap election

The Equal Civil Partnerships Campaign has urged political parties to demonstrate their commitment to choice and diversity by pledging to extend civil partnerships to all couples at the upcoming general election.

Responding to the announcement by the Prime Minister Theresa May that there will be a snap election on June 8th, the Campaign Manager for the Equal Civil Partnerships Campaign Matt Hawkins said:

“When it comes to the debate over mixed-sex civil partnerships, an awful lot has changed since the election in 2015. The Court of Appeal has ruled that the unequal access to civil partnerships cannot continue indefinitely. MPs from all parties have given their backing to our campaign. Over 760000 people have signed a petition calling for the opening up of civil partnerships to all couples. Britain has arrived at a major crossroads with negotiations over Brexit and a snap election both on the horizon. Political parties have the perfect opportunity now to demonstrate that they want Britain’s future to be one built on choice and diversity by using this election campaign to pledge their support for mixed-sex civil partnerships.”
