Marriage and Civil Partnership (Scotland) Bill
The Scottish Government consulted between 12 December 2012 and 20 March 2013 on the draft Marriage and Civil Partnership (Scotland) Bill. We will publish an analysis of responses to the consultation and introduce the Bill to Parliament later this year.
The consultation follows the Government's announcement, on 25 July 2012, that it would legislate to allow same sex marriage.
That announcement followed the Government's 2011 consultation on the registration of civil partnership and same sex marriage.
