THE issue of gay marriage will be debated by Thanet council at its meeting next month.

Councillors will have the chance to express their views on the Government consultation on proposals to change the law to allow homosexual couples to wed.

Independent councillor Ian Driver has submitted a motion that the council supports the proposals.

He said: "If two people love each other and want to make a commitment through marriage why shouldn't they?"

Cllr Driver has set up a Facebook group, Thanet Loves Equal Marriage.

The Government's consultation paper on equal marriage can be found at www.homeoffice.gov.uk

The consultation deadline for local authorities to respond is June 14.
