Gay Marriage Public Meetings
10:51am 18th January 2013
Cornwall is being urged to have its say on controversial gay marriage plans.
The government wants to make same sex weddings legal.
Truro and Falmouth MP Sarah Newton does not know how to vote, and wants to hear what locals think.
In a post on her website, Sarah Newton said: "I have been contacted by many of my constituents who have been keen to pass on their views about the issue of same sex couples and civil marriages.
"I do understand the strength of feeling over this issue and as a firm believer in representative democracy, I will be casting my vote on this issue according to the majority view of my constituents."
Two meetings, being held on Friday, have proved so popular that they are now fully booked.
They are being chaired by Sarah Newton and The Right Reverend Tim Thornton, the Bishop of Truro at Diocesan House, Kenwyn at 10am and 6pm.
Anyone who would like to pass on their views is being invited to do so via contacting email@example.com or on 01872 274 760
