MARRIAGE AMENDMENT BILL 2004 - In Committee


Senator LUDWIG (4:53 PM) —For the same reasons I articulated in relation to the amendments moved by Senator Nettle—although these amendments are in a different form, in part they have the same effect—the Labor Party has been clear that it does not support a change to the existing legal basis of marriage in Australia. Labor will not be supporting these amendments.
