Unmarried couples are one step closer to having the same financial rights as those who are married with the reading of the Civil Partnerships bill last Friday. The private member's bill introduced by Liberal Democrat Lord Leicester of Herne Hill went through unopposed. It will have implications among others for pension sharing, inheritance and capital gains tax. Lord Leicester is seeking to have the bill examined in a select committee over the spring and summer. If the Government opposes the bill it will be subject to a committee of the whole house and could be killed off.
