BBC Scotland, 31 Jan 2012

Scotland's opposition party leaders have voiced support for same-sex marriage during the best attended Parliamentary Reception in the history of the Scottish Parlament.

Labour's Johann Lamont, the Tories' Ruth Davidson, the Lib Dems' Willie Rennie and Scottish Green Patrick Harvie are united on the issue.

SNP ministers also back same-sex marriage, but many church leaders have voiced opposition to it.

The government's consultation on the issue attracted 50,000 responses.

Those responses are now being analysed and ministers will decide during the coming months whether there should be a change to the law.
