Clarification from GEO Spokesperson
Clarification from GEO Spokesperson:
“We have commissioned some research to test attitudes among same sex couples and opposite sex couples about civil partnerships to help inform us about what we do next. The Quotes attributed to Minister for Women and Equalities Penny Mordaunt by the Sunday Times at the weekend were not quotes from the Minister, but were taken from a policy paper on this research.
The Times did not speak to the Minister and she received no request to do so.
The Government’s position is that we are open minded on this matter, and want to hear people’s views.”
