20    Social Issues—Australian Christian Lobby

Senator Simms, pursuant to notice of motion not objected to as a formal motion, moved general business notice of motion no. 1172—That the Senate—

    (b)   condemns the Treasurer (Mr Morrison) for attending the Australian Christian Lobby National Conference on 23 April 2016; and

     (c)   calls on the Prime Minister (Mr Turnbull) to reject the Australian Christian Lobby’s request for a temporary suspension to the anti-discrimination laws should a plebiscite campaign on marriage equality eventuate.
