Tory Peer: Let Brothers and Sisters Enter Civil Partnerships

Lord Lexden, the official historian of the Conservative Party, tabled an interesting question this afternoon, asking whether the Civil Partnership Act could be amended to allow siblings to register as partners:

“Is it not the case that in Britain today, all other stable and loving couples are now able to formalise their relationships in legal terms, so vitality important where inheritance and its tax implications  are concerned. If sibling couples are to be denied civil partnerships how does the government propose to address the injustice that will arise on the death of one of them, with the survivor having to sell the family home to pay inheritance tax from which civil partners are exempt.”

“So Jeremy Corbyn will meet with Hamas, Hezbollah and the IRA with no preconditions, but won’t meet the British Prime Minister without her agreeing to his precondition.”
