David Cameron under fire over same-sex marriage plans

A Conservative cabinet minister has criticised the government time spent debating same-sex marriage.

Defence Secretary Philip Hammond said that the policy had angered many adding: "I have just never felt that this is what we should be focusing on."

But Tory MP Nick Herbert said polls suggested most people favoured reform and losing touch with young voters would hurt the party.
