Madam Chair, as indicated to Senator Smith, I have a brief bracket of questions about his bill that I would like to put to him.

The CHAIR: Continue, please, Senator Abetz.

Thank you. I just want clarification that the bill that Senator Smith has put before the parliament in fact does not reflect the postal survey question, which was: should the law be changed to allow same-sex couples to marry? Is it correct that his bill takes this a lot further and potentially will allow—if we were to take the Australian sex survey, for example—33 different gender types to also marry?
