Plebiscite (Same-Sex Marriage) Bill 2016; Second Reading
The original question was that this bill be now read a second time. To this the honourable Leader of the Opposition has moved as an amendment:
That all the words after “That” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:
“this bill be withdrawn and redrafted to legislate for marriage equality and that the House calls on the Government to afford all members of parliament a free vote.”
If it suits the House, I will state the question in the form 'that the amendment be agreed to'. The question now is that the amendment be agreed to.
