Religious Freedom Review Expert Panel; Order for the Production of Documents
The government has sat on this report for over four months. The Prime Minister has already made it clear that he has plans to dismantle anti-discrimination laws in this country. Mr Morrison and his cohorts on the Right lost the marriage equality debate, and now they want revenge. They're going to try and entrench discrimination in other parts of our community. There were over 15,000 submissions to this inquiry. There is a very high degree of public interest in this matter, particularly given the comments made recently by Prime Minister Morrison. It's time to end the secrecy and allow the Australian people to see this report, including Mr Ruddock's recommendations.
Question agreed to.
