Compassionate Conservatives?

BBC NEWS | Politics | Tories to offer marriage advice.

A future Conservative government would offer counselling to couples about to get married, shadow schools secretary Michael Gove has said.

People should not have to feel they were “on their own” when building a relationship, he told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.

The state had to be more “practical” and “human-centred”, he added.

He also outlined proposals to encourage flexible working when he addressed the Conservative conference.

He told Today he also wanted to expand home visits for couples with newborn babies, making them “truly universal in the best traditions of the NHS”.
