Marriage

Dear Mr Murphy

Thank you for your letter of 21 May 2012 regarding a petition opposing same-sex marriage submitted to the Standing Committee on Petitions from the Christian and Muslim communities.

The Government notes the strong opinions on this subject. As you are aware, three bills have been introduced into Parliament and have been referred to committees for inquiry. The future consideration and progress of the Bills will be a matter for the Parliament.

from the Attorney-General, Ms Roxon
