Civil partnerships halted again

Post by GD on Wed 28 Nov 2012, 7:19 pm

Civil partnerships will have to wait until at least next year before coming back to Guernsey's States, despite politicians agreeing to bring in new laws in 2006.

The Chief Minister was asked this morning about why the new legislation is taking so long.

Deputy Peter Harwood told the States the Policy Council had to prioritise several different new rules it was tasked with introducing.

Measures to prevent discrimination against women, and a new disability strategy are both being prioritised ahead of civil partnership laws.

Deputy Harwood was challenged by deputy Elis Bebb who claimed the priority process was 'playing one minority against another' but the Chief Minister insisted all three areas could not be worked on at the same time because of 'limited resources', therefore the Policy Council did have to prioritise.

......THE BOSS......
