Ed Miliband: I'll be voting for equal marriage in the House of Commons
Ed Miliband MP, Leader of the Labour Party, commenting on tomorrow's equal marriage vote, said:
"I'll be voting for equal marriage in the House of Commons and I'll be doing so proudly.
"I will be doing so in a proud Labour tradition which saw us repeal Section 28, equalise the age of consent, introduce new rules on adoption and introduce civil partnerships.
"I'll be voting for equal marriage for a very simple reason: I don't think that the person you love should determine the rights you have. That's why I'll be voting for equal marriage, along with the rest of the shadow cabinet.
"I'll be urging other Labour MPs to maximise our vote so that we can get a decisive majority in the House of Commons, it can then pass through the House of Lords and we can get it into legislation.
"When we do, it will be another important step forward in the fight for equality in Britain."
