I should just say that I think the Scottish proposals appear well rounded and thought through. I am sure there is much that will carry through into Westminster legislation. I note the proposals publish a draft Bill. Again I think that the balance on the key issues is appropriate and right and will be reflected in the eventual England and Wales Bill, when it eventually arrives (with possible exception re Church in Wales and Church of England).
While I think it would be good if some of the principles of the Scottish proposals were carried through to Westminster, the legislation is for the Holyrood parliament and reflects the different legal jurisdiction and how the legalities are arranged.
Re proposed legislation and re Chap 1,1,(2),(a), (1)- might this be overturned on appeal under Human Rights Law? It might be argued that since same sex couples cannot reproduce jointly the original grounds for this law in relation to same sex couples would henceforth be unnecessary?
