FTimes-STT Report, June 25

The Parliamentary Legal Affairs Committee on Wednesday morning voted 10-6 against a same-sex marriage bill.

A tight race was anticipated but, due to a number of absentees during the voting, the bill went down by a clear margin.

The committee has decided to prepare a report to be presented before a full sitting of the parliament proposing dismissal of the bill.

The committee chair, Anne Holmlund did not give an exact timeframe but said the work of preparing the report could go until autumn and it would possibly be presented before the national assembly in late autumn.

According to Holmund, if the bill is enacted, it would affect other laws.
