The shadow women and equalities minister has told members of parliament to be on the ‘right side of history’ when voting on marriage equality today (5 February).
Yvette Cooper, for Labour, asked her colleagues to not discriminate against same-sex couples when considering their vote.
She said: ‘In marriage, let us celebrate, not discriminate. Let’s be on the right side of history.’
Cooper also suggested same-sex marriage could put more than £14 million ($22m, €16m) into the economy.
