More time for consultation on gay marriage
The consultation period for the Command Paper on same-sex marriage has been further extended until January 29.
The Gibraltar Government initially extended the consultation period for Command Papers to accommodate the Christmas holidays.
But after receiving numerous responses the Government has taken the decision to further extend the consultation period until Friday January 29, 2016.
This is to ensure the widest possible public consultation, the Government said in a statement.
The draft Bill to amend the Marriage Act was published as a Command Paper for public consultation on December 22, 2015.
This is the start of the consultation in the legislative process; the stage before the proposal becomes a Bill for consideration and debate in Parliament.
Comments on this Command Paper should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or delivered to: Command Papers Consultation c/o Kevin Warwick, Ministry of Education, Justice and International Exchange of Information, Suite 771, Europort, Gibraltar.
Any comments received after 29th January 2016 may not be taken into account for the purposes of the relevant consultation
