French prime minister: Equal marriage and adoption laws to be introduced ‘quickly’

The French prime minister Jean-Marc Ayrault told a French television station this morning a change in legislation to allow gay couples to marry and adopt children will be done ‘quickly’ and that a draft is ‘ready’.

According to French news website, M Ayrault told radio station RMC and TV station BFMTV this morning that the measures would be implemented soon.

It was not clear whether the prime minister meant a draft bill had been drawn up, but the site reported remarks made by Gilles Bon-Maury, the president of the Socialists’ Homosexualités et Socialisme faction that such a bill could be presented to Parliament for discussion “before the autumn”.
