Labour MP supported the idea of marriage equality in Northern Ireland


A Labour MP plans to legislate in the UK’s Parliament for equal marriage in Northern Ireland as the government stated there was no reason to block the move. The issue has been blocked by the DUP in the Northern Ireland Assembly for years – but following the collapse of power-sharing in the region, Northern Irish LGBT activists addressed the PM asking her ti take the issue under her personal control. In a major concession this week, the Northern Ireland Secretary Karen Bradley signalled the government would not block such a move, saying that if there is any vote concerning the issue in the British Parliament he would vote in favor. Conor McGinn, the Northern Ireland-born MP for St. Helens North, told PoliticsHome he is planning to take the step.
