At around 5pm on Monday, Democratic Services at Guildford Borough Council approved my petition asking the council to write to the Equalities Minister supporting equal marriage proposals and, if procedural time constraints allow, formally respond to the consultation.

At time of speaking it has just under 200 signatures. 300 or more will trigger a debate and vote at either full council or the executive.
