Clare Bailey “disappointed but not defeated” following equal marriage verdict

Thursday 17 August 2017 

Clare Bailey MLA has said that she is "disappointed but not defeated" after the High Court
rejected two same sex marriage legal cases.
The South Belfast MLA said: "I am disappointed on behalf of the many committed and loving couples who are denied the opportunity to marry here in Northern Ireland.
"I respect the decision of the court, but remain determined to play my part as a public representative to deliver marriage equality.
"The Green Party brought the first motion on marriage equality before the Assembly back in 2011. We know that the majority of MLAs are in favor of change - today I am disappointed but not defeated."
The South Belfast MLA concluded:
"We need to restore the devolved institutions and get equal marriage back on the Assembly agenda. This is about real people, their lives and their love."
