MPs debate gay marriage proposals

All eight Welsh Conservative MPs and two Welsh Labour MPs have voted against plans to make same-sex marriage legal. Welsh Secretary David Jones was one of the few cabinet members to vote against but won't be disciplined because Tory MPs had been allowed a free vote.

Liberal Democrats, Plaid Cymru MPs and most Labour members voted for the bill.
