Help

There is "no mandate in any political party, not in any manifesto" for gay marriage said Tory MP Peter Bone, who said marriage should be between a man and a woman.

ConservativeHome editor Tim Montgomerie said the Freedom to Marry campaign group spoke for "mutual tolerance and support for equal rights".

The pair debated a Daily Telegraph letter from leading Conservatives - including David Cameron, John Major, Michael Gove, and Boris Johnson - backing gay marriage.
