- From the section Guernsey
Guernsey has agreed to consider changing the law on civil unions.
Deputy John Gollop raised the issue in a question to Chief Minister Peter Harwood in the States.
Deputy Harwood said the Policy Council had identified and agreed to bring a proposal to the States within the next 12 months.
A 'Union Civile' would be a non-discriminatory system, providing legal recognition for long-term relationships.
