Gay marriage: Church views as Welsh Tory MPs oppose bill


All eight Welsh Conservatives will oppose plans to legalise gay marriage in the Commons later on Tuesday.

The issue has caused a split in the Tory party, with many MPs expected to use a free vote in the Commons to oppose a bill.

It is expected up to 180 Tories will go against their party leadership for the vote, and there is also a split within the Church in Wales on the matter.

Oliver Hides on Good Morning spoke to the vicar of Sketty, Canon Andrew Knight, and the Reverend Andrew Morton, and first asked Mr Morton why he resigned as vicar of Llangybi over the issue .
