To move the following Clause—



“Reform of civil partnership



The Secretary of State must make regulations to change the law relating to civil


partnership to bring about equality between same-sex couples and other couples


in terms of their future ability or otherwise to form civil partnerships.



Regulations under this section must give effect to such equality within 6 months


of this Act being passed.



For the purposes of this section, “other couples” means couples who but for the


provisions of section 3(1)(a) of the Civil Partnership Act 2004 would be eligible


to register as civil partners of each other.”
