Commenting on the fact that senior Conservative, Chris Grayling, has been recorded suggesting people who run bed and breakfasts in their homes should have the right to reject homosexual guests, Plaid Cymru's candidate in Carmarthen East and Dinefwr Jonathan Edwards said;
"The past few years have seen growing consensus amongst progressive parties when it comes to equal rights for gay people. Plaid Cymru is proud that we have campaigned along side others to introduce equality and fairness on this issue. "We are therefore extremely concerned that the man who would become home secretary under a tory government holds such regressive views. Of course, the tories do have a track record of being on the wrong side of the argument when it comes to equality and it seems that these views are still alive and well in the Conservative Party."
