THE CHAIRPERSON OF the Constitution Convention, Tom Arnold, has today urged the public to submit any suggestions, proposals or comments they have regarding same sex marriage.

The call for submissions comes ahead of the convention’s examination of the issue at its next meeting on 13 April. Arnold said one of the central principles of the convention is that it is a citizens’ forum.

“I am calling for people to engage with the convention by making their views known on what is a very important subject for many in Irish society today,” he said.

“We are keen that the convention’s deliberations and subsequent decisions are properly informed. Therefore, we want to hear from all sides of the debate regarding the proposal to make a constitutional provision for same sex marriage.”

He said the convention was encouraging organisations, citizens and the disapora to make their voices heard.

Submissions, proposals and comments must be received by 19 March, 2013 and can be made on the convention’s website.
