Gay Weddings, Gift Vouchers and City Centre Big Wheels

Listen in pop-out player

The government wants to legalise same-sex marriage. It's been a highly contentious issue. But if gay weddings were to be legalised, what would it mean to the UK wedding industry? Are wedding planners expecting a boost to business? The London Eye is a major tourist attraction and many cities have followed with their own "big wheels". But some are struggling to attract customers. Are tourists falling out of love with the wheels? HMV is the latest big high street name to go into adminstration. The shops are now accepting gift vouchers, but questions are being raised about consumer confidence in gift vouchers and the industry is looking for ways to protect their customers.
