Stonewall Chief Executive Ben Summerskill said: ‘Some regrettably shrill anti-gay campaigners have taken to suggesting gay people aren’t really that bothered about equal marriage. We now know just how important this reform is for millions of people in this country.

‘Added to other polls showing overwhelming support for equal marriage from gay and straight people alike, this exposes the hollowness of one of the main claims made by anti-equality campaigners.’

In December an Ipsos MORI poll showed 73 per cent of all people in Britain think gay people should be able to marry. Similarly, a YouGov poll for Stonewall’s Living Together report last year found 71 per cent of all people in Britain support government plans to introduce equal marriage, rising to over 80 per cent of people aged 18-50.

MPs will vote on equal marriage next Tuesday (5 February) when the House of Commons considers the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill.
