Hammond denies 'incest' comments

Hammond denies 'incest' comments
Philip Hammond moved to fend off a fresh Government row over gay rights today as he denied equating equal marriage to 'incest'.

The Defence Secretary was alleged to have said the word at a meeting with students, according to PinkNews.

But today a spokesman for Mr Hammond told PoliticsHome: "It's untrue. He didn't equate equal marriage to incest."

A Downing Street spokesmand also said: "My understanding is that those reports may not be accurate."

Mr Hammond is alleged to have made the comments during a visit to Royal Holloway University on the same day the Government published its Marriage Bill.
