Brown backs Howard's gay initiative

29th Mar 04

Greens Senator Bob Brown says Prime Minister John Howard should emulate the British Conservative leader Michael Howard who is hosting a summit of young gay and lesbian people at Parliament House in London today.

"The British leader's call, recognising the need to end discriminatory laws against gay and lesbian people, shows just how much John Howard has lost touch with the modern electorate," Senator Brown said.

"A summit in Australia would look at the widespread discrimination against same sex couples under commonwealth law, including superannuation and recognition of partnerships."
