Green councillors request inquiry into equal marriage vote


Phelim Mac CaffertyAfter a meeting of the Green Group of Councillors on Brighton & Hove City Council last night (Monday 23 July, 2012), deputy convenor Councillor Phelim Mac Cafferty said, “Following the recent vote by Councillor Christina Summers on equal marriage [at a session of Brighton & Hove City Council], Green councillors met on Monday evening 23 July and requested that the party’s official inquiry process be initiated to ensure a fair, speedy and transparent outcome.

“It is for the inquiry panel to determine if any further action may be needed and it wouldn’t be appropriate to say any more at this stage.”

This is a process governed by the party’s constitution to ensure the rights of all party members are protected.
