Marriage law costs warning 'a scare' tactic
I NOTE Dr Owen Gallagher takes the accurate cost figure of "many millions of pounds" as a reason for the Government to think before introducing equal marriage.
I can only assume Dr Gallagher is drawing from the Government's impact assessment of the legislation from last August, which gives a figure of £3m-£4m.
However, this report also lists the economic benefit, which is put at four or five times the cost over the first 10 years.
To try and use this figure (about 5p a person) to scare is a cynical misinterpretation of the facts.
