Public meeting on equal marriage

08 September 2015

Islanders are being invited to a public meeting on Thursday 10 September to discuss the Council of Ministers’ proposals on same-sex marriage, divorce and dissolution.

At the meeting, members of the public will be provided with an overview of the proposition (P.177/2015), which recommends the introduction of same-sex marriage in the Island. It also outlines the proposed updates to divorce legislation and the introduction of legal rights for cohabiting couples. Following the presentation, there will also be a question and answer session with the States’ Director of Social Policy, Ruth Johnson.

The Chief Minister, Senator Ian Gorst, said "Marriage is at the heart of Jersey’s community, and we want it to stay that way. These proposals have the potential to affect many people’s lives, so it is important that the public has the opportunity to hear more about the proposed plans."

The proposition is due to be debated in the States Assembly at the end of September.

The meeting will take place between 6.30pm and 7.30pm on 10 September at St Helier Town Hall.
