Key may support marriage equality - all the way

Mon 30 Jul 2012 In: New Zealand Daily News

  John Key Prime Minister John Key has indicated he is likely to support Louisa Wall’s marriage equality Bill right through all three readings. Mr Key said on Radio Live he would use a conscience vote to vote in favour of a bill allowing gay and transgender couples to get married. He signalled his support for the bill in its early stages, but said he was unlikely to change his mind over the course of the debate to allow same-sex couples to marry - given it was a conscience vote. "You go through all the merits of the argument and look at what people put up; but my view is that if two gay people want to get married I can't see why it would undermine my marriage with Bronagh.”
