Comments: House of Commons considers Marriage bill amendments

One last wrecking amendment?

Looks like it Richard - at least to string out Ping Pong and perhaps stall the Bill. Can it go beyond the Summer recess?

Tom, I think that it can, it's the end of a session which brings the consideration of a bill to an end, I think. However, judging by the massive majorities against any attempt to wreck or severely change the bill, I doubt whether this one will get through tonight.

Well, if it was another attempt to wreck the bill, it didn't work. It's all over now bar the Royal Assent, which comes tomorrow or Thursday.
